    As a kid I looked up to Gary like a big bro. Learned alot on those trips to Chicago on our antique buying adventures. I'll never forget the owl that flew into the windshield in the middle of nowhere in Illinois at 4am in the middle of a blizzard… I've never seen or heard Gary scream before.. never did again either 😂 Love and hugs to Kim, the boys, and Danny.
