    I had the honor to work with Gary for 16 years at the Beaumont S/C. After the Entergy merger I moved into
    another department and whenever our paths crossed, Gary always had a kind word and a handshake. Great guy! May God bless his soul and comfort your family. Mar

    Sherri, Amanda and Family,
    There are no words that can express how truly sorry we are for you all during this most difficult time. Even though we understand that God has a plan for us all it is never easy to accept the loss of a loved one. We will always remember Gary and his wonderful spirit and personality. We weren't around him but a handful of times, and we can't ever remember him not smiling or being just plain friendly. We hope that you can find some comfort in knowing that we are here for you always and that you are all in our daily thoughts and prayers.
    With much love,
    Stacie & Rock
