I just found out yesterday that Gary died. We were such good friends here in Madison, Wisconsin and I had made many trips on Amtrak to visit him when he moved back to North Dakota. The last time he called me was before he went into the hospital this last time. When I found out that he was at the hospital I waited for him to return my call figuring Gary would get better because he would always pull through alot of his struggle with cancer. I was ready to leave work to come out there again and to be with him if he wanted me to. I just loved Gary. I would like to send my sympathy to his family and sisters. I spent a couple of weeks with him after he had his first bone surgery in MPLS because the Thanksgiving before that he had his bone surgery I had visited him and he cooked turkey and we danced in the kitchen and this is when I told him to have the lump checked on his neck. He told me that never to feel bad if he died because he had had such a great life. I am really going to miss his calls and my visits with him. I truely loved your brother. If you want to call me you can call cellular (608)320-2836. He said he was going to be buried in the Black Hills of South Dakota, Mount Rushmore.
