My thoughts, prayers, and congratulations go out to Cary's family as I celebrate with them the blessing of having had him in their lives for so many years. May your memories of Cary serve as a balm to the pain of his loss. I'll remember him as being a happy, fun young man who attacked life with an intensity that was admirable. God bless.
