Wino you know wrote: January 19, 2021 2:11 pmWell, everyone- I hope this isn’t my final update, but I’m currently at the hospital, feeling very tired, nauseous, weak, and a lot of difficulty speaking. No appetite whatsoever. I know this can’t go on much longer. It’s clearly evident I won’t see any of you again. I’m fading. But, if I haven’t said it already, you *ALL* need to know how special you are to me and always have been, and you all need to know the love I have for *ALL* of you will go with me to my grave and into eternity.
It’s been a joy.
I hope this isn’t your final update either. I’m hoping it’s just a setback, and a low, in the ebb and flow of treatments. Sending so much love and so many prayers, and so many hugs and shining smiles your way.

Please find comfort in knowing that you are in the hearts of many, worldwide... because you are.
You’re still grinning, we’re still winning, nothing left to say
I’m still gliding as I go flying down this endless wave

My heart is breaking my friend.
I will always remember you sat at the table outside La Marmite in Paris chatting up the waitress and also your joy at finally getting to walk over the Abbey Road crossing.
Just know my friend that you are loved and will always be a part of all of us.
Sending hugs xoxo

Garry, I will never forget the times we shared together. Whether it was a concert, MOTM , or Hooters ( Buy now I would have thought you and Larry would own a franchise) or the Wing House in Tampa , and being your photographer to take a picture of you with some hottie. You will and always will be a friend, even though you are a Yankee fan. I can look beyond that. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Stay strong and Fins Up my friend!!!

Garry - Having trouble finding words, and for an English teacher that is a rarity! You have touched so many people with your infectious zest for life. And knowing about some of the challenges that life handed you, and how you met those challenges with a happy and enthusiastic spirit, always blessing those around you with love and affection, is such an inspiration. Lucky me to have the occasions to spend time with you at BN tailgates. God Bless — Colleen

Garry, I think we can all take a lesson on how you have faced this situation with humor, courage, and dignity.
