    Jennifer, I was so sorry to hear about Gary passing away. He was such a fine young man. I was extremely proud to have him serve with me at the Burgaw PD. He was certainly one of our best. God bless.

    I feel so blessed to have had Gary in my Criminal Justice classes at CFCC. He was such a delight to have in the classroom and we had many long conversations over those two years. I will pray for his family during this difficult time. God Bless you.
