    I am so sorry that I will not be able to make it to the Services..but know that my heart and prayers are with you at this time of darkness. But remember, God has all things in control and it is his will that we must abide. Gary was very special to me..afterall I did name him and was very proud of that. Each time, I saw him he would tell his family that I named him. May the Peace of God be with you and your family. Love you, Ethel Lee.
