Condolences for Gary Richard Lance

I just found out about Gary's passing and want to express my sincere condolences to his family. Gary and I were cousins on the Merrell side of the family. When I was growing up at Fruitland, I saw him often, but lost touch over the years. Just before I retired from Blue Ridge Community College, I saw Gary with one of his grandchildren at an event at North Henderson. We talked about family and old times. It was really nice seeing and talking with him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

I'm so sorry for the passing of Gary. He went to school with my uncle Ray Lyda. He came through my grocery line at Ingles. God bless all his family during this time.
