    My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I went to school with Gary. He was a nice guy and a funny guy. At our last class reunion he talked about his illness. My grandmother died with Parkinson so I know how devastating it is. I’m thankful his suffering is over, but I’m sorry for your loss. He will be missed by his fellow classmates and so many more.
