Just sitting here this morning and so many times after this months passing and thinking of Gary and Diane and knowing full well that the void in the lives of the 4 children and grandchildren is seeming so real We are still having trouble believing it ourselves, even after attending the sweet Celebration of Life. You did a nice job in bringing a lot of us together, if even for a short amount of time. I hope you are all holding each other together and working thru this together….Our Love and Especially our prayers that the Lord will Hold you all so Closely and you will feel His presence as you walk thru this Valley…..Hugs
So sorry to here about Gary I haven’t seen him in years. But I remember playing with Dee Dee and Johnny ,Wanda ,Susie . My sister Mavis and Gary had to babysit all us kids. We just heard about your Dad and Mom.

It is with much sadness I type these words of memory of a great man and couple. Gary and Diane were wonderful people and very generous and gracious to our family over the years to which we are forever greatful. I will always remember Gary for his words of kindness he offered me to help my parents in any way.
My father and I played many great and fun rounds of golf with Gary. He was a fierce competitor who hated losing, as we all do. He was the best at making the most unfair “fair bet” as he liked to say, but we loved him for it. Our hearts and prayers are with you and all of the Reed family. Brian Hunt & Family

I’m so very, very sad to hear the news about your mom and dad. I can’t even imagine how tough it must be for you, especially passing so close in time. I worked on projects with your dad beginning in 1983 (my first year at the Duncan McIntosh Co.), he was always very helpful, always always sincere, always honest and always told you “like it was.” He was a mentor for me and his “matter of fact” business aptitude has helped me in many situations during the years. My thoughts are with you, your family and your long-time employees.
Sending you strength and condolences,
BILL 7 KAY NICHOLS

On behalf of our family, please accept our deepest condolences! We will always remember Gary and Diane for their love for one another and all of you, for their heart-felt hospitality, down-to-earth but unique personalities, and always giving hearts! The news of their passing was not easy to hear, how much more difficult for all of you to experience: you have been in our prayers and thoughts. Please know that we will continue to pray God gives you all His peace and comfort, wisdom and understanding, unity and love! With love, Mark and Ira!
Learning of Gary and Diane’s passing came as a shock… Even though I knew of Diane’s condition, my last memories of them both are from Santa Barbara family week-end when, once again, they brought the family together. This is what they enjoyed the most and were very good at: being a family! Their love, generosity, and hospitality will always be remembered and missed! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of all your lives! You are all in my prayers and thoughts!
I wanted to share something from our Russian heritage, which is so timely and reflective of Gary and Diane. It was July 8 in Russia when Gary passed, and this day is a holiday celebrating Family, Love, and Faithfulness (equivalent to Valentine’s Day in America). This holiday was established by the orthodox church in memory of a couple (Peter and Phevronia) who became an icon of couples’ faithfulness, complete love, and marital happiness while they were alive. According to legend, they both died on the same day, on July 8, 1228.
Gary and Diane’s relationship, marriage, and life reflect the same love, faithfulness, and marital happiness, and their passing so close together is not accidental but very explainable. Although so grievous and difficult for us, and especially all of the close family, their life and example continue to live on in us, and I am thankful for the hope that they are happy to be together again. They will always be remembered! And you are all in my prayers! With love, Mila!
