Dear Deborah and family, I’m very sorry to hear about Gary. Please find comfort for your hearts in the words at John 5:28,29 that 'all those in the memorial tombs will come out' - a beautiful promise that this pain you feel is only temporary because our loved ones can return to life. This promise helps us to deal with our losses and I hope it helps you cope as well.

Since I was in 5th grade Gary was like a second dad to me. I spent the majority of my days and nights at the Spencer household with Amanda and her family. Gary always made me laugh and lovingly teased me, but most importantly Gary and Debbie welcomed me into there home and always, always made me feel welcome. They were always my second family. It is an incredibly sad time and I’m sending all my love to Debbie, Amanda, Nate, Rachel and all of Gar’s grandchildren, his extended family and friends. Love you guys very much. Please reach out if there’s anything you need. I’m here always... .XXXOOO
