I am sorry to hear about Loren''s death. I have fond memories of Shirley and him in Bowdon. He was always a lot of fun, and I kidded him about having him as my Judge if it became necessary to have one. I wanted him on my side.

I will keep all of the family in my prayers. God bless you all. Love, Peggy Young

I was not very close to Mr. Gary, but knew him through researching records at the Courthouses. He was a very knowledgeable man and helped me on a number of occasions. He will be sorely missed.
