  1. So sorry to hear of it. I have fond memories – he insisted on teaching me how to work on my own car at age 16! Sending love to all of you Gnirrep’s.

    Dear Gary and Family,

    How sorry I am that your father is gone. He sounds like a marvelous person, rich with warm gifts, friends and a wealth of family to enjoy. Reading about places in my native state was lovely and knowing of Shiloh was telling. My husband, Jim, sends sympathies, also. May this wrenching time be short and may shared, happy memories bring smiles and peace soon.
    Love and blessings.
    Jerri Lynn
