Dear Doty and Dennis, I just wanted to take a bit, and write a bit about Gary, my memories....what a wonderful landscape architect,he was, how many credits he has to his name, in St. Louis and his beloved Monroe County. The Lakers, that was Gary. You both made that team.Chesapeake, what a beautiful development, now we can go back for a minute, how many great parties there were at the clubhouse at Chesapeake! The music, it was the best, we partied hard, danced, drank, and glad we made it home. The last time I saw Gary, was November 2018, at Harrisonville telephone co, we talked a bit,and after awhile we ended our conversation with, it was so good to see you, but damn, getting older isnt fun. Rest In Peace Gary,by now Im sure you found Willis, and are discussing baseball, the Tories...and Mo Co. With my heart felt and deepest sympathy, Nanette Grosse
