Denny & I can still hear Garry say "out--standing" the way he said it. We have so many precious memories with him and so glad that we were able to spend some time with Garry & Adel in Florida last Jan., when they came to visit us. When my college plans in my Freshman year at Oshkosh changed (due to upcoming marriage plans), to transfer to the La Crosse EEG program, Garry took me over on a cold, slippery January road-trip to interview/apply to the program (which I was thankfully accepted). We drove back in his little VW the same day (better roads on the way home). He had the day off, or took it off from the paper mill, to drive me over. I am forever grateful for that time with him & what he did for me!! He will "live on in our hearts" until we see each other again in heaven.

Dear Adel and Timothy, Kenny, Alan, Larry and Marilyn, I pray the shock and grief of losing Garry may soon be replaced with smiles and warmness for all the great times with this wonderful man. Garry was so kind, warm and funny. His union with you Adel was the beginning of a wonderful journey. He was truly blessed to share his life with you. I can see his smile and hear his wonderful laugh. My heart goes out to you all. God bless, and keep him in your hearts. He will be forever missed. All my love, Martha
