Gary, So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I have fond memories from when we were kids and you lived up the road. She always looked out for me when you and Larry Joe were being typical boys. At those times I remember her yelling “Garrrry”. May she rest in peace and the memories you have remain forever in your heart. Sending warm thoughts and prayers. Maryann O'Hern
