    So sorry to hear about Cousin Gary’s passing. Many wonderful memories of my family (the Thompsons of Toledo) visiting Aunt Ev and Uncle Bob and cousins Gary, Glen, and Gail at their home on Karen Isle Dr. in Richmond Hts all those years ago in the 50’s and 60’s. Our summer reunions with all of our Cleveland relatives and old friends were legendary. Rest in peace, Cousin Gary!
