I haven't watched it yet and won't be able to for a while yet. Just writing this was tough.

Well I can't promise the youtube video will be good forever but the Onedrive download should out live any youtube copyright restrictions
I believe it might help get the emotions out ?
What do I know
Cheers.
Just go to the video folder,

I am going to miss him very much. I was / am upset. I talked back and forward with Gary from time to time and also gave him my recipe fro Cheese Scones (English) Biscuits (USA). His monitor blew up and he talked to Bill about it and it was not worth fixing due to cost which is often the way. I asked him about that. He seemed to be everywhere on the forum. I mean that in a nice way. Whether it was chatting to Stephanie and the gang over there in graphics, the guys in over clocking (Steve, Paul etc.)pushing that extra Hertz from there CPU without breaking it or talking with Lady F about her case mods while still helping new members and older ones alike with issues. He was a very talented guy and we will miss him. He left a big pair of boots to walk in. I never met him though we live about 40 miles apart. I have not been in good health this last couple of years and now it is too late as I would have liked to have met and chatted and swapped tips and ideas.

Sad, very sad. I vaguely knew him, yet from reading his posts around the forums I felt I knew him well. How do you grieve for an online colleague that you have a strong admiration for and you can't reach out and hug another who admired that person just as much as you.

My deepest condolences to his family and friends.

All i can say right now is i am really hurt by this
Mate we all are so very badly. It's kind of hard to know what to say. I was in shock for a day or so. I didn't realize what a big place in my heart he had until he had gone.

He has a Big place in mine too can't believe i talked to him that day

Gary.

Well, many a times I called him Gray .... but he did not mind. Despite of having an age difference between us, It never felt that he is having a soul elder than that I have. Always enthusiast. Always helpful, and always friendly.

Its traumatic to come to the forum back after five days and having such a news.

Rest in peace, my beloved friend. Will miss you, always.

The video haunts me just like everything else about this. I was baffled by the hoodie pic appearing in his MVP profile. What was he trying to say or hide? There is a marked change from the pics where he's "in the pink" so I have to wonder if he was ill. Maybe his wife can tell us more about his health condition.

I had encouraged him to go to MVP Global Summit in November since he'd gotten such a kick out of pictures and stories of Rayda's being the life of the party and Karaoke superstar. He said he didn't think he'd be able to go. I didn't press the matter but was thinking about offering some of my miles for him to go since I think he would have enjoyed it and Ray and I would have really enjoyed having another 7F buddy there - especially Gary. I'm still hoping Shawn will go since he'd be treated as royalty by Consumer help MVP's who all speak so highly of him there. He could fly his spaceship.

I'm almost sure he said it was finances that were keeping him from going but I wonder about his health. I realize it's ridiculous to be picking over this now but I still can't get it out of my head. Maybe flying halfway around the world tomorrow will set me upright.

I have to agree he never admitted any health issues the past few days before when i talked to him he seemed like good ole Gary just trucking along the forums

I have been absent from the forums continuing my education for work and from time to time check the forum this pretty much floored me in a way i couldn't imagine almost like i lost my own relative which is what Gary was to me a Big older Brother
