    Sorry to hear about this. Gary and I were friends from elementary to high school but we lost contact after graduation. I remember going to Gary's 11th birthday party in 1977. We all went to Bedford to see "Star Wars" and had a sleepover afterwards. Great time and a memory that I'll always cherish.
