Gary… my long time brother. I love you and always will. Thanks for all of the times we shared, and thank you for the unfailing encouragement you have given to me for so many years. I miss you and am sad that you are gone, but I hope we will meet again one day. I love your Dad too and will do anything I can to help if needed. You always “hurt me” with your music, and it was a privilege to be a part of. Twang on forever Gary. I will never forget you. JB

I have such wonderful memories of Gary from school. He shared such a passion for music which I shared as well. I will always remember him coming into my 4th grade class and playing and singing Merle Haggard’s “Okie From Muskogee”. I will always have such wonderful memories of him and am so blessed to have known him.
