I'm slow in getting the final information out regarding the party/wake/celebration of life for Gary and I do apologize. The party/celebration will be March 4th at 2:00 at our home: 5332 W. Winding Desert Dr, Marana, AZ. I know many of you cannot make it physically, but will be here in spirit. Gary would want us to get together and remember good times and share great stories. If you can't come, please take a minute on the 4th to raise a glass of your favorite beverage in Gary's memory.
For those of you who are planning to attend, please let me know as I will have to give a list to the gate guard for you to get a pass. You'll need to go to the main gate (not the south gate which your GPS will direct you to). Dress casually and comfortably since this isn't in any way a formal event.
There are several motels/hotels in the area. Off of the I10 Cortera Road exit are Comfort Inn and Suites, La Quinta, Super 8, Holiday Inn Express, and Days Inn. About 4 miles up the road from the house is the Ritz Carlton. There are many other hotels in Oro Valley.
I also want to thank everyone for their support, words of wisdom and sympathy, and just for being there for me in spirit. I can't tell you how much it has meant to me.
Hugs to you all and let me know if you can make it. Also, feel free to share this as you feel appropriate as I may not have had email addresses.
