I grew up with The Cragle Family and I miss them all. They lived near my cousins and we all kind of grew up together loving one another as family. My Father worked with Dagwood and my parents visited socially at their home.
Gary was a natural born trip! I’ll never forget when he started driving and drive he did! He used to scare us girls driving on the wrong side of the road, weaving back and forth.. and saying “Oh no! The brakes are gone” Then laughed so hard amused with his self. I will NEVER forget his smile and laughter or his spirit.
I found out in December 2013 of Gary, Dave,Jim, and Mikey’s deaths. I cry even now writing this as three of my cousins and my sister are also gone, leaving Mark, my cousins, Diane, Brenda, and Carolyn as well as my sister Cathy and myself behind. My heart is truly broken.
Living in Florida I have not been in touch with friends to much regret; therefore I want to take this opportunity to tell the family that I am so so very sorry for your loss. I miss you all.
See you in Heaven Gary!
All my prayers
All my love,
Vickie “Vic” Anderson
