Whenever we pray the Lord’s Prayer we pray for God’s Kingdom to come. In that Kingdom the Bible promises: “And no resident will say:
“I am sick”
I am so sad to hear that my friend I grew up with has passed on. Gary and I were good friends thru high school. I have nothing but good memories. He was one of a kind. God Bless Steven McNulty
So sorry to hear of Gary’s passing. He and I grew up on the means streets of St. Joe. It was quite a neighborhood back in the day. Robert, Gary’s brother (known to us then as Bobby), my brother, Roger and a host of others would play Ditch ’em, a “game” somewhat like hide and seek but with way more yelling, well into the night ( an activity I’ m sure would not be allowed these days). Sadly, those days are gone forever, over along time ago. Rest in peace, Gary.
As my brother David mentioned, we were all so fortunate to grow up in such a great neighborhood – so full of kids to play with. From my earliest memories, Gary was one of my best friends. I remember playing at his parent’s house – it was such a wonderful place to explore – so full of nooks and crannies. I am so sad to hear of his passing. Patty, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Molly
