I was most impressed by the turnout for Gary’s memorial, I had to park a block away. As an old prison guard I count heads as a matter of habit. I can’t be precise but there were well over 100 in attendance. I’m not sure what the protocol is on these occasions but after his daughter’s most eloquent and touching tribute,I started to applaude, and needn’t have worried, because I was quickly joined by many others. Seems to me that Gary’s family is all the memorial he requires.
