The Story Behind the Song: Reminiscing (Dedicated to Gary)

I am reminded of Gary by a calligraphy wall hanging he made when suffering with a terminal illness. It reads, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”  Proverbs 3:5-6.  I never met Gary; he passed away before his parents became our neighbors and my kids “adopted grandparents.”  Yet I sensed his strength when I look at the brush strokes of his pen and what was important to him. I was told that he helped others in the hospital, even as his own life slipped away. Positive influence can extend long after an individual is gone.
