  • You did a wonderful job with your daughter, Crystal, and I am honored to call her my friend and of the young woman you have helped her become. May you rest in peace. KLE

  • I remember Gary. I’ve known him since I was a little girl. He used to work for my dad at the Riverhead and Suffolk Theatre. You will be missed. God Bless.
