I learned of Garry's passing while at Emory with my wife on the day of the service. I was Garry's supervisor for four years before I retired in 2004. I was very fond of him and found him to be a wonderful counselor who touched a lot of young lives while he served as a VR Counselor with Ga. DOL. I remember his stories of his family and his dog. I pray God's rich blessing on his family during these difficult days. He was a wonderful member of the Cumming VR Team. I was blessed by him and his compassion for others.
