    Uncle Gary~
    In case no one ever told you…you were a blessing to all of us and you were deeply loved.
    Thank you for building snowmen with me at Mamaw’s house when we were little and thanks for taking that butt whoopin’ for me when mean ole Papaw found out we used Mamaw’s sewing buttons for the eyes!
    You sure didn’t deserve any of the bad you endured in your life. I can’t remember ever seeing you angry or mean.
    I guess I thought you’d live forever. Missing you already.
    I love you. Traci Lee

    Uncle Gary…I will always remember you as the one who couldn’t walk away from the mirror. You were scared of getting in trouble by my mother every time you had to babysit me and Traci. You also were the one who dared me to say a curse word and then told on me. I love you for introducing me to macaroni and tomatoes. I will miss you and love you. Hug Mamaw for me.
    Love Tambra Lockhart
