To ALTHEA AND FAMILY: You may not remember me but I met Gary back around 71 at NSU. We were freshmen that stayed on the 9th floor of the Twin tower dorms. Gary and I Struck up A Friendship that I truly valued and even though we went our separate ways I will always remember Gary for the down to earth person that he was and the nickname he went by PHILLY DOG. Two years ago I was able to attend a NSU homecoming and Gary's name came up during a conversation about where are the people that we went to school with and this person had your husbands phone # and I was able to speak to Gary after about 50 yrs. of no contact. Man that was great and I told Gary the next time I come down we would get together and talk about the good old days. However our GOD had other plans for Gary and I'm sure you and your family miss him dearly. My sincere condolence to you and the family and may the GOD(our GOD) OF ABRAHAM, ISSAC, and JACOB bless you and the Garvin FAMILY until eternity. Donnie Pannell
