    Dear Mary, Please accept my sympathies in the loss of your brother. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the memories you all have comfort you in some way. Take care. Sincerely, Mitch

    I remember the day Mom went to the hospital to have my baby brother, Gary…….I was so excited. Now that has turned to grief, as almost 47 yrs later, my husband, will be leading his graveside service. Gary’s quick wit, big smile and big heart will be missed as we celebrate his life on Saturday. I love you, Gary.

    You will be in our thoughts and prayers — my sympathies go out to the entire Pranto family. I will always have wonderful memories of Gary; basketball in the back yard / trips to Wildwood in the beat up jeep.

    As a family of faith, I know you will call upon the comfort and compassion of God as you mourn the loss of Gary, a son, brother, father, and member of a large extended family. Please know that, I will keep all of you in my deep heartfelt prayers. You can be confident that you are not alone at this difficult time as Psalms 34:18 assures you “God is near to those that are broken at heart; And those who are crushed in spirit he saves”

    I have a tender memory of my dear brother on my wedding day 43 years ago. Gary was only three years old and not feeling good, but I wanted a photo of just him and me. I was buttoning his little overcoat while he quietly stood on a bench seat in our front hallway looking at me with such sad eyes when the photographer took our picture. A picture in my wedding album that I treasure to this day and always.rnI love you dearly, Gary. There is another hole in my heart.

    My father was always a man with a smile on his face, and always had room in his heart for anyone. He was very friendly and could talk to anyone. I remember countless times of being in that big truck that he drove since as long as I could remember. Family was always first in my dad’s heart, no matter what. He loved both me and my sister with everything that he was, giving us everything we could of ever wanted. Every single birthday, I would wake up early and I’d call him while he was off at work. And every year he would tell me how special it was for him to watch his little girl grow up. And he told me the exact same thing every year, so I knew that he would of said the same thing to me this year. This year I’ll be a senior in high school and there will be a hole in my heart when I go to look for him as I walk that grand stage to grab my diploma. But I will always know that he is there watching over everyone, especially me. As humans we make our fair share of mistakes, but I will never look at this man less than my loving father. I miss you dad, hope you rest peacefully. We love all love you very much.
