Hi Gary, This is the third or fourth time that I've visited your website, but only the first that I've signed the Guestbook. Thank you for talking with me today and sharing what the Lord has taught you about brokenness, which God in His wisdom uses to polish our spiritual lenses so that we can clearly see both the reality of this fallen world as well as the glory of our secured Salvation in Christ. You called me right after I had finished praying, and I praise God for ministering to me through you. Thank you for being so willing to serve the Lord -- He does amazing things through you. You're in my prayers. Enough of that -- on to lighter things.... I really enjoy your website; I looked at the Variations, and I prefer the 2nd variation to the first. Beautiful site -- love the photos, especially. God bless you, Gary. Taylor

Gareth, I had left a message earlier, but I did not see it posted, therefore; I will try again. The website is great. I felt like I got to know Sole a bit more after seeing her childhood pictures. The story about the ballon really touched me, I got goosebumps while I was reading it. You have a very unique way of expressing yourself. Now I know where Sole gets her artistic and poetic abilites. By the way I am Sole's friend here in Korea. You have a wonderful daughter, you should be proud. God bless, Ramon Carrasco

Hi Gary, I just came home from Worship practice tonite and was led to view your website again. I searched thru it in depth and again found it to reveal a caring, loving, and very special man and father. I was very moved by not only your wonderful photos but your many comments on things you showed in your pictures. I hope and pray that God blesses you and turns your life right side up again. You deserve His blessings.God Bless and see you soon, Karen PS I didn't realize that your daughter was born the same year as my son. Joe was born on April 30, 1978.

I just went through every link, the pictures are ALL good. I tried to type the address in the url bar and it would not come up, so I did a search for it and it took me to a page about your parents. At first I wasn't sure if it was a part of your website, but as I read the words I knew it was you, your style of writing, vocabulary, and mostly the content about your mother. I remembered the things you told me about her and it all clicked. Thankfully there was a home link on that page that took me to the page I was looking for. From there I visited the entire site, why because it was intriquing-hope I spelled that right. This site barely touches on the life you have lead. Please make sure Sole' knows my phone number and address, I wish she would write me, but she doesn't know me so I do understand. But if and when you are no longer in this world I would like to know, and maybe she would tell me? I read the other quessbook entries, and found one from Paula I really have to agree with. An excerpt is as follows: "Those veiwing this page have had to realize that you have seen into the genius, creativness and very personal side of a facinating man. A rare man who is unafraid to reveal his inner most being. A man deeply tormented by the unjust. A man I am proud to call my FRIEND". "Some have tried to destroy this friendship with wrecklessness but what they didn't bargain for was the God ordained family in us. God crossed our paths many years ago and that cross remains firm and stands strong. I am honored to be among your confidantes". Ditto!

Please e-mail me even if it's to say "leave me alone" And Gary if I can find Sole through you, please help me. You told me once you thought of me as your daughter, if you have ever thought of me like that please help me. Being able to talk with her will truly comleat me life. thank You

Your site is a great testimony to many lives.. They say a picture is worth a thousand words and that is defintely true with this site... You can feel like you've just read a whole book on your life through the pictures and comments you have included... It is amazing how each life is so special and has a unique story to tell- as your site shows. But there is even better news- as believers in Jesus- we get to spend an eternity together sharing and creating beautiful memories and moments with no pain, no evil, no sin, and no death.. It will be time without end where we fellowship, and worship and live. A time when families will be reunited- My prayer is for Jesus to return soon- (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18) to gather us together in the clouds to go to Heaven. It has been a joy to know Gary and to count him a friend.... Pastor Joe Toomey

Gary, I finally found your site. It is beautiful and I'm sure I will spend many moments going thru it all bit by bit. We miss you at The Adams House--I know JR misses you much. Hope to see you in church soon. Check out my web page--I have been experimenting and just did it. It needs a lot, but this is only the beginning. God Bless you and keep you, Gary. Karen Adams

I like how many of the pictures tell the story of your life... How old is your daughter now? Do you still keep in contact with her? Anyways the URL above is for my myspace account which has some pictures and links up with my journal which in turn links up with any other sites I have right now... I plan to get a deviant art account which is a site that hosts online art galleries... I'll be sure to send you that address as soon as I sign up...

~ I am so happy to have my dad as my father. He has stood my my side through every opsticle in my life. My dad has taught me that no matter how hard life get's, you must hold on and push yourself to the top. No matter how bad it seems there's always a blessing in each of our lives...patience and strength will get you through any duration. My dad has been there to guide me when I needed guidance, and to stand back when I needed to learn. My dad saw my son as a blessing, as I was to him. I love my father very much. I feel like I have come to a point in my life I can now see what my dad sees. I can feel as a parent as he feels. I hope I can achieve as he has acheived and make him proud of me. I love you daddy! Happy birthday:)

God bless you and keep you safe and may you find some resurgence of happiness in your life. Love, Valerie

Gary, There's nothing like the sight of a man that lost his spirit. I'm so sorry that you had to endure so much. All I know to be true in this day and age is that everything, EVERYTHING in life happens for a reason. And the bigger the purpose a person has the more they have to be strengthened by trials and tribulations by our heavenly Father. You must have something GREAT to do!!!! I'm looking forward to see God's work at hand. I'll keep you in my prayers Gary. Your friend, Raphael (CPEA rep. at the Rite Aid)

I want to thank you for that. I have never met you in person, but through the years and the house fire, etc., I have grown close to you, you have listen to me complain, cry, ash why and search for meaning to my existence and purpose in this life through all the horrible events in my life. Through your eyes, and your faith I now see the answers to my questions. And oh how I have learned to deal so much better.. :) ha and who'd a thought we would become so close just from using my re-mail service. :) My grand children Nathan & Aaliyah are doing great, and help me with interviews for fire prevention now. I hope to have an office some day and each of them will have a desk of their own. Thank you and take care the best you can my friend, I love you.

Those veiwing this page have had to realize that you have seen into the genius, creativness and very personal side of a facinating man. A rare man who is unafraid to reveal his inner most being. A man deeply tormented by the unjust. A man I am proud to call my FRIEND, BROTHER IN CHRIST and the father of my spiritual daughter, Sole' and grandfather of my beautiful spiritual grandson, Elijah. Some have tried to destroy this friendship with wrecklessness but what they didn't bargain for was the God ordained family in us. God crossed our paths many years ago and that cross remains firm and stands strong. I am honored to be among your confidantes.

~When you asked me to read what you had to say at the end of the picture of you giving me a hug I reacted somewhat calloused, or as though I was not affected. But it did bring a tear to my eye...

I love you daddy, and as I've not shown through the years and have most often said 'I love you'  at the wrong times....I must have chained my existence to repetitive action. I seem to reiterate all that has ever been in my life. So with keeping the ritual alive I must then continue to say "I love you" at the wrong times.

I love you....

Elijah will know who you are and what a great father you have been to me. I hope through genetics maybe he'll have a part of you in him. Maybe a hopeless romantic, a poet who loves life like no other person I've met before. I love you daddy

~My words for you are the song that I've written for you to listen to every time that you are down. I love you daddy - We're doing good right now...




        age26 (2004)

~This is my song about my dad

I wrote:

I cried; he blew a 'solomn kiss', (it was his life I thought I missed).                           

He held me tight, but I still had fear, because my truth I thought was  clear....

Too many sorrows in my yesterday's tomorrow's too many tears, to many fears.. in my traveled years.

I tried to live like he, to find my destiny

He held me tight and he said, "Close your eyes, so you can find your peace of mind."                                                                                                                                                            

His solomn kiss - he's like a butterfly he still moves on, but his beauty never dies.

USA - Sunday, December 05, 2004 at 06:07:24 (PST)


This poem is for you Gary, (The poetry is personal and, though I am thankful for it and enjoyed it, I have removed it and am keeping it to, and for myself..- GRP), a friend for many years and a person I admire for your deep and creative thinking, caring and commitment to those less fortunate, and your curiosity and passion for life and all that's beautiful.
