Hi Frankie, my name is Nancy Rodriguez and Gary is my nephew. Garys, older brother Jack Smith, found out about his passing and shared with other family members via Facebook. We live in Chandler, AZ the same city Gary moved from when his very young. We havent seen Gary since he was 10 years old but that doesnt make the pain of his loss any less. Im certainly glad that he had you with him for the last 19 years. We wouldve loved to have had the chance to meet you and be reunited with Gary as well. He was always called Baby Gary thats what we called him from the day he was born. Gary was named after his Uncle so to keep them straight we always called him baby Gary. Thank you for being his friend and partner in life. Live and prayers from Arizona. -Auntie Nancy
