Gary is my brother-in-law, but he is more to me then that. I have known Gary for as long as my sister, his wife has. I looked at Gary as my much loved older brother and one of the best friends I have ever had. We had our differences at times but then who doesn't, never amounted to anything. We knew we loved each other and any fusses would never change that. I know he will always look down upon me as a loving brother and friend keeping his eye on me and I will be happy to see him again in Heaven and he will be happy to see me.
