    My dear, sweet husband, Christmas is coming and you left this earth 10 days ago. The holidays will be very mournful but we will try to honor you in every way possible. I miss you with all of my heart, but I know you're with me always. xoxo

    Even though I never met Gary, I could tell what a special and wonderful man he was.. The love that Chris and him had was magical and special. I am sure his legacy will live forever. I also know that his love and memory will last forever, by those who had the fortune of knowing him, sharing moments with him, feel his love and care... I wish I had been one of those lucky people to witness in person what a grand human being he was.... RIP
