As I face my first Valentine's alone in 45 years, and face Gary's 73rd birthday I wanted to say a special Thank You to all of you for being so kind and thoughtful to us during our recent loss.
My family and I would like to say a special Thank you to Loretta Guazzini and The Garden's Funeral Home Staff for your sensitivity and kindness. To Lana Robards and the entire Board and staff of New Frontier, we could not have made it this far without your unwavering love and support. We would also like to thank the Deputy's from the Sheriff's Dept for your respect and thoughtfulness when you came to our home. Also thank you to the ambulance crew from Banner who came that morning and tried to revive Gary. We appreciate the valiant effort you made.
Then there are all of you who came by and brought food, flowers, cares, and prayers, a shoulder to cry on and memories to share. A special thank you to my friend Leslie Beach who laughed with me and cried with me and jumped in to help when I couldn't think what to do. So many special people in our lives! We are truly blessed. Gary would have been very touched, as were we.
At this special time of year, we ask that you cherish the ones you love. Live well, Laugh often and Love much and when you think of Gary, we ask that you remember him for his Pink hair, his big laugh. his love of life and family and of course, his Hawaiian shirts and Cowboy Boots.
Thank you all. With much love and deep appreciation,
Debbie, Aaron, Sean (Marie, Dylan and Amory, Lanell) and Wesley Ridenour
