Words Spoken by Barb, Gary's "Main Squeeze" on February 2, 2014
So somewhere in youth or childhood I must have done something good, for here you stand there loving me. This is a quote from a song sungby Julie Andrews in the movie "The Sound of Music".
Gary's greatest gift to me was that I was "Loved and Felt Loved" by him, which in my opinion,is the greatest gift any human being can give another human being. I think Gary's legacy to all of us is this; find someone, just one person, make them happy, build your world around them and you'll be happy too.
Gary was happy. He got to have all his dreams come true in his brief life here on earth. How blessed wa he and how Blessed were we to be a part of his life and.... Also show us all how to die with Grace and Dignity. I know he is in heaven now smiling down on us. Our memories of him will always be a part of us and... He ... will be missed.
I'd like to end with a poem I read by the poet EE Cummings;
i carry your heart with me (I carry it in
my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear and whatever is done
by only me is your doing my darling)
i fear no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and its you are whatever a moon as has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart
i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
