Glenda and family- Jim and I just learned of Gary’s passing today when one of our customers told us. We are unbelievably sad for all of you and send our love. The times we spent on the water with Gary and in your home and at different sports shows are etched in my memory forever. We send our love and pray that God will send you all peace and hold you in His arms. Thank you for sharing your gifts and love with us.
