I am Gary's grandson, Gary. I did not make it to the funeral. Years later, when I had my own daughter, Haley, I was depressed and needing to close that chapter in my life. One day, my wife at the time and Haley were out and I was all alone. I felt something lift me off of the couch. It was not a dream because I never fall asleep playing XBOX. I heard a voice singing Rock a Bye Baby. I knew it was him. When it was time for "Down will come baby," he went BOOM and dropped me just like he did when I was a baby. When the song finished, I glided back to the sofa and I felt peace. That was his last gift to me.
