I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the Durst family and dear friends. May you find comfort knowing the LORD is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.

Oh my, Gary was one of my favorite, good people at school. During the open house at the Jr. High School our last year I was wearing a dress, from home ec. which was PINNED ON, and he passed me in a hallway and smelled and said a lovely, fun thing to me which made me feel so good, even though I was a miserable failure at that project! He was always that way to most people. What a lovely person and glad he was on the planet earth! May he rest in peace, and may his loving family celebrate the life he shared with them all!!!!!! Condolences for you loss. Jara Self, from class of 1963 Vandalia Butler High School.
