    RIP Gary, your presence here will be sorely missed.

    RIP Gary.
  4. Todd,

    Please offer this blessing to Gary's family, he will be missed.

    I give you this one thought to keep -
    I am with you still - I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am sunlight on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain.
    When you awake in the morning's hush
    I am the swift, uplifting rush
    Of quiet birds in circled flight.
    I am the soft stars that shine at night.
    Do not think of me as gone -
    I am with you still - in each new dawn. (Author unknown)

    I did not know Gary long, but he left a lasting mark in my heart.

    Until we meet, take care.

  10. I too am saddened with this news.  I gained so much knowledge from Scar.  He and his knowledge will be missed, but what he passed to us who were honored with his presence here will keep hime with us by passing that knowledge on to others as he would want us all to do.  Scar, my friend, I will miss you!  Condolences to his family, and to all his extended family.  Steve

  16. It's truely a sad day at SMF. He has offered great advice and support for such a long time. He will be missed.  Locally when someone passes I smoke their family a turkey, I always keep some on hand. I will get one thawing asap and smoke one in his honor tomorrow night.

    ....and here, until just a minute ago, I thought my day was a bad one.....I had already lost one significant friend a few days ago, and now this. My own problems seem pretty unimportant right now.

    As has already been said, Gary was truly one of the good guys, here and also in real life. He was always kind, generous and honestly....GOOD.

    I sincerely feel like I just lost a true friend.

    This is a true shock, and I tend to ramble when I'm in shock, so I'll shut up now.

    RIP, Gary - I guess Heaven needed an extra angel today, my friend.

  19. I have prayed for his family. Please let us know if there is anything we can do...
