    Gary has been my friend for nearly 20 years, playing games and tinkering on computers and being like minds for so long. It’s crazy, my oldest email in my Gmail is from him. I’m so sad to see him go. My prayers for you Christina, and his mother and family and other friends.

      God bless you Brian. He loved every minute of playing games and talking to you. Everytime we had a problem with the computer he thought of you. He loved talking to you about that stuff. Thank you and give the kids and the wife hugs from Indiana.
