Gary Lee LaBar Sr.

We spent the last two days in Nacogdoches, TX, celebrating my Uncle Gary, who passed away this past week. Uncle Gary would call us up every time a hurricane was coming for Louisiana and tell us to get out of dodge and come visit him. I can still hear his voice on the phone.
"What are you still doing there? You better get outta there William."
Gary loved his family, worked hard, had a great sense of humor and will be missed by all of us. The ceremony was beautiful and lots of his family and friends got up to say a few words. You can read his obituary here. Also, you can go view a slideshow made by his family here.

Here's to Gary, my father's brother, our shelter from the storm.
