So sorry for your loss!  Saw Gary a few years ago at the mini reunion and had a nice chat. I have only my grandsons left in my family but have always felt an affinity for your family because of Frieda and Dot.  Thinking of you all.

​Gary's death, and that of other classmates, brings reality into sharper focus.  I am very sorry to learn of Gary's passing last December.  He and I grew close during our shared Spanish III and Spanish IV classes.  I know: you're probably surprised that Gary had four years of Spanish.  He was fun to be around, very laid-back, and a good student.  One of my favorite photos is on Page 32 of our 1962 PERGOLD--our total Spanish IV class with Gary in the center of Jan Seelinger, me, Miss Isley, Anita Ward, and Nancy Whitlow.  We all looked forward to 4th Period.  Blessings to the family of Gary and to the NKCHS Class of 1962.     --Anita Eagle Frevert, Beaver Lake Ark.
