Yesterday afternoon we lost Gary Wells. He had been struggling with health issues for quite a few years. Last weekend I spent half the day with him. Much of that was at the shooting range, where he shot the best he'd shot in years. We had a great day. We could not wait to go again this weekend. Looking back, it puts a smile on my face that in his last week, he went out like a rock star, doing what he loved to do and doing it better that anyone else, including your's truly.

God Speed my friend.
Thanks for all the great memories.

Time will help heal the pain in your heart and that last bit of time you spent with him has a happiness all it's own. Sounds like you were a very good friend and good friends are extremely hard to come by in these times.

I spent 10-15 minutes speaking with Gary at Bates this year. Sure didn't know or think it would be the last time. :(

Such a nice guy. Had some good stories, too.

I liked Gary. All of us in the Buick community liked him. May each of us cherish memories with Gary. Remember that life is a vapor. Get close to your families and significant others, NOW, as no one is promised tomorrow. My prayers are for the grieving Buick community and that the Lord will comfort each of us where we're at.
