    I had the pleasure of hanging out with uncle Garry one-on-one when he took two business trips down to Clarksville, TN. We each bought each other a dinner, we caught up, we made each other laugh, and it may have been the most enjoyable time I ever had the chance to spend with him. You all are in our thoughts.
