By Faith Edgar (Usko) on Sunday, November 5, 2006 - 03:28 pm:

In memory of a wonderful friend, Gary Robert Edgar, I submit this:

Love Isn't Love Until You Give It Away

I knew of a man who was worth great love
And also worth great respect.
Because he did impart the love
He did receive the respect.

For those who needed his love and support,
And for those who needed to be cherished,
He always availed to them his love
And we knew his love would not perish.

We were touched by his impish smile
And we were touched by his gentle laugh.
We were touched by his great integrity
Which must have come from aloft.

So we bid him adieu and we send him our love
And we send him on his way.
But we ask ourselves with great loss
How will we survive each day?

But we will ..

We will meet each challenge honestly
And we will meet the world head on.
It is because of the way he affected our lives
We will find the strength to go on.

With kindness, love, humor, and honor..

The family and friends of Gary have experienced a great loss. He died on October 10, 2006. Too, too soon..
