I still am having trouble believing this is real.... From the time we first met, you have always and will always be the best friend i could have hoped for... And I'm so very deeply sorry that the world has lost your beautiful face.... I wish I could have said farewell with one last hug and friendly smile...My heart is truly broken and lost and I will surely miss you forever... Until I am able to see your face again, please look over us all and know we all love you so very much.... Fly higher than anything has ever flown before, and do it with pride. You have finally warned those wings. I love you Gary Ray Eaton

Dear Lisa & Julia & Kaley & Breonna & Gabriel

This past year has been a very sad one for our extended family. Gary Ray was just too young. We all are still coping with missing Grandpa Gary Arthur as well. The fact that the corona virus is keeping us socially isolated makes this loss even harder on everyone who cared for Gary Ray. Our condolences to all of you. We miss you.
