Patty, Don and family, so sorry for your loss. Heartbroken. Garry you were so fun to be around. You were one of my heroes growing up. Even saved my life with a dramatic leap over the pool fence to the deep end! You spent hours trying to build up my courage to do a back dive. Lol. You always made me feel special. I was just thinking maybe this summer we could get together. 💔 Love and miss you.
