Hi Uncle Gary, I miss you so much, its not even funny. You were my best friend, my big brother , maybe not by blood but by heart && yuo were still my uncle. && if that Darcy up there is who I think it is , then Hi :]. You have 2 beautiful kids, Raymon && Donna Jean who live by me Uncle G && dnt worry i will spoil them and take care of them for you :]. Yah thts what i told everyone, your up there with your best friend Raymon and yuor having a better time up there then i am down here. Its just so hard to believe that the morning before you got hit you dropped me off at my friends house. I kissed and hugged you bye thinking i would see you the next day, and i did, but you werent the same, you didnt look like my Uncle Gary, your head was so swollen and there were so many machines attached to you. I was with you those last 3 nights. I don't believe it and i don't want to. I watched you lay there on life support dying with so much hate in my heart for the guy tht ran you over, and dont worry, im still looking for him, I think i pretty much got figured out how to find him. That bastard is out of jail. Don't worry cuz he'll be back there soon. There was so much things for you to see me do G, im only 16, your supposed to see me graduate && have kids and get married and yuor supposed to see my grandchildren too. WTF. but you know what, i know your there watching over me and i know you'll see me while your up there watching me and making sure i don't get hurt or into trouble. Whenever I look at Raymon I can't help but think of you, && i kno he will be amazing like you. && I kno those 2 shooting stars i seen when i was talking about you were you letting me know your still there in everything i do. I'll never forget the good times we've had. Bumpin to the music in yuor G-ride van. Remember, its not a FORD its a CHEVY !:] Chevy ridin high boy :]. I talk about you everyday and you will never be forgotten Uncle Gary && you know tht. Seeing you lying there on tht bed taught me a lot about life, not to take it for granted && one minute you could be there and the next your gone. The whole family is still in shock from it. Nanny's still a little flipped out and I've never seen Uncle Jimmy so hurt in my life. I don't think I've ever been so hurt in my life.

Don't worry Uncle Gary, I will not let you down.
I love you with everything I have in my heart.
&& let the guy who took your life away burn baby burn.

This was a very unfortunate accident and that is what accidents are accidents its sad to see people
pointing blaim at others over it...i feel sad for the familys of all partys connected. its also not right how the news media talks about both people to make a story...i'm sure both of these familys have heard enough. i'm sure both of these familys are devastated over it. i pray for both familys and hope they seek god for comfort to get thru this!!!take care, Jerry T

I just found out about this yesterday. I was reading the observer about the driver being charged with a felony. When I saw Gary's name, my heart sank. Gary was my first real boyfriend and has always and will always hold a special place in my heart. So many important and eventful things happened during the time I knew Gary. He could always make me smile, laugh and feel good. He was a great guy. I loved him then and will love him always. All I know is that heaven got a good one on August 4th. Much love always and many memories to live on. Love always,Rachel

sucks to be you... try to find me f***er... autopsy reports say that the hit didn't kill him.. it was all the s**t in his system that killed the bastard... his dad kicked him out of his house that night because of it... his blood alcohal level was .18 and he was rollin on coke!
