Hello Diana and family, This is Susan Feltenberger Hanna. Mike and I would like to extend our sincere condolences to you and your family. Gary was 6 years older than me, so to me he was like Elvis back in the 50’s-60’s, his black hair, playing his guitar, singing and playing the piano. My other memory was when your daughter Barbara was born. We lived in Madisonburg and I ran around the house singing, The Beach Boys song, Barbara Ann, when we found out her name. Silly memories, wish we had more. Sincerely, Mike and Susan Hanna
