Mrs, Scarbelly

Thread Starter 
JarJarChef contacted me this morning about trying to get in contact with Gary's wife about starting a 4H out reach program he had been talking to Gary about last year so I called Kathy for him to get things set up for them. I had talked to Gary many times but never talked to Kathy, so I was a little hesitant at first but she is just like Gary, after just a minute on the phone it was like we had known each other forever. I guess that was one reason they were such a special couple!
Kathy wanted me to let everyone at SMF know that she is doing Great! She is still very involved in the 4H program and is starting up the cooking classes again that Gary loved doing so much. She even did a pizza class and fired up Gary's pizza oven!
All the donations that Todd Johnson had collected went to very good use. I think Todd had posted awhile back that she had used the money to buy a pig for a 4H member to raise. The girl that raised it got a scholarship for her work and then Kathy gave the pig back and the owner sold it and donated the money from the sale to another 4H member so they got a scholarship too. So the money SMF donated actually provided two scholarships so Kathy named the pig "SMF times2" since it pulled double duty!!!
Gary might not be with us physically but his spirit is still doing a lot of Great work and helping out a lot of people, I think he always will!

Hey Dave, should you happen to have some communication with Kathy, would you please pass along that we're all thinking of her and the family this holiday?  I know these are especially hard times after loved ones have passed, and Gary is missed.
