My condolences as I regret not being there with family during this difficult time. I have fond memories of Gary, most especially related to his love for The Beatles, George Harrison in particular, and music in general. I too play bass for example. I have been reflecting on other memories of him as well most recently and in particular also remember, especially in my youth, him being a kind and compassionate influence in my life. I am grateful for his influence on this world. He will be missed.
