  1. Dear Rita and family, Gary was a beloved friend for many decades. In fact, due to Gary and Roger, I met my Vytis. And you know that became our history. I could never express my joy when learning of Gary’s and Rita’s salvation. Our husbands are fishing in heaven now! And I hope God is giving them the fish that put up the best fights after trying out multiple lures and breaking fishing line and having the fish jump out of the net and all the best stories we heard and shared that lit up their eyes with such joy!
    My sincere condolences my friend and sister in Christ. Joy to your family.
    Lovingly, Barbara Lelis

    • Thank you Barb, Gary loved you guys. Often remarked how blessed Vytis was finding you. We also thanked God for the resulting faith you both shared in Our Lord and Savior. Sweet Barb, won’t be long before we see our guys again and will celebrate in our new heavenly home together. Love, Rita
