    Gary Weems’ visible life spoke volumes about his internal character. He was obviously a dedicated, stable, dependable Christian who loved his family, his church, and His Lord. When I had the opportunity to visit the church of his attendance, I noticed that he was usually present, even when he became increasingly ill. He will be missed greatly, but he left a cherished legacy that will be long remembered. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the “Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance to Gary’s family. Our prayers continue for them.
