    Dear Karpovich and Aagon families,
    My deepest sympathies in the loss of Gary. He was a dear friend for many years and a kind and gentle soul. We had lost touch for awhile but when he came back to the area, I saw how happy and proud he was to have reconnected with his family. Please take some comfort in knowing that even though he was not always able to show you, he loved you so very much. I will keep you in my thoughts during this difficult time.
