So sorry to all the family about Gary's passing. I enjoyed playing cards and talking poker with him. I regret not going to see him when was sick. I guess I always thought there would be another tomorrow and that his condition wasn't as serious as it actually was. Our heart goes out to Grant, Tonya and Rocky and all the rest of his extended family. Gary will be missed.
