Uncle Gary

Today we found out that my uncle-in-law, Gary, lost his battle with cancer.  He had made a decision last week that there would be no more hospitals, no more transfusions. 
I don't have anything profound to say or have the right words to make any of us feel better...but I wanted to share with you how much he meant to us. 
Gary was such an incredible mentor to Martin...sharing his passions with him, guiding him through life.  He meant the world to Martin. 
He had a contagious smile, gave great big hugs, and always showed you how much he cared for you.  He accepted me into the Wolfe family with all his heart, treating me like his niece even before Martin and I were married. 
 Out hearts are aching and it's so difficult to understand why he had to leave us now. The only comforting thought is that he truly is in a better place.

My uncle-in-law, Roger, made this beautiful video in honor of Gary.


  1. So sorry for your loss. The video was beautiful.

  2. Roger did a beautiful job. Don and I are thinking about you and Martin ~love Elizabeth
