  2. Dear Gary and Family,

    So very sorry about your loss.

    You look so much like your Dad.
    I saw you come into Parkview’s ER on Labor Day as I was up there with my Dad – (broken hip & pelvis)

    Was going to sign my Auntie Emma Novak’s guest book today and found you guys.

    I can’t even imagine how you feel, but I will keep all of you in my prayers. God Bless you and your family.
