I am not sure if Gary considered me a good friend, but I cared for him very much. We rode together in and around Hot Springs for a couple of years. I missed him allot when he moved to Springdale. I would appreciate it very much if you would let someone in his family know of me, and to please give them my deepest sympathies.
