Uncle Garry was always there to greet you at their front door with a big smile and a hug. Then he would ask me what look were we going for today? Since I have an eclectic wardrobe, lol 😂 Always made me feel good! I will always remember him. So sorry for your loss Aunt Myrna. You both hold a special place in my heart. I'm always here if you ever need to talk ❤️❤️❤️
