 Our sympathy to your family.
May you rest in peace.

(Cousin) Pat Bowers Fry and Don

I am quite speechless over seeing his death. I can't say all the good things about Gary. I spoke with him at the Grove and we always had enjoyable times whenever meeting. I knew Ken also, and always thought highly of the entire Minich family. We were close friends growing up and although having not much money we shared priceless relationships. May he be happy with God in heaven.
