Helen and family

We are so very sorry to hear this sad, sad news. Always enjoyed visiting with Gary about his Scottish roots and his Gaelic lessons. A big loss for our little Bulwer community. May the Lord's peace that passes all understanding be with you all in the coming days. We will be thinking of you all.

Sorry to read of Gary's passing this morning. It seems not too long ago we were either together for xmas parties, or a clients funeral.. Our own was so remote we, had plenty of time. Well, it your didn't take note, our future is here so don't spend the rest of your days remembering. Remembering is such a fleating short time. It doesn't have a long life. with love,
