In the midst of finding happiness and a lady he wanted to spend his life with, he died in an accident. It broke my heart to see his Mom holding on and crying out for him to come home with her. Sometimes life doesnt seem fair but God makes no mistakes. Please continue to pray for the family. I love you Lil Gary and will cherish your sweet memory. Till we meet again, Ill be watching for your star !
