I just came back into town yesterday and found out today that Cary had passed. I am still in shock and my deepest sympathies to his family. Cary never failed to help me out if I needed it and I wish I could have thanked him for that one last time, but hopefully he knew he was appreciated. Gonna miss you buddy!
