|I will miss talking with Gary and reminiscing
about things that happened many years ago when we
were young. He had the best memory & could
remember things I had forgotten long ago! I know
GG loved his Mamie Jewel and there was nothing
like her. Everytime I spoke with Gary he had to
tell me all about what she was currently doing
(like shaking her little butt & dancing). May
God bless the family during this difficult time.
I will miss you Gary Wompson!!
