I only wished we could have met our Adopted Uncle Cary sooner so we could have loved him longer???? He was such a special man, so glad he found my Aunt Lucita ❤️ We will cherish our memories until we meet in glory! Reply to this comment

I met Cary several years ago through Lucita, who has been a friend of mine for many years. Upon our first meeting, I immediately felt their love and great admiration for each other and their spiritual connection. They blessed and helped others via their missionary work and many trips to Honduras. Cary will be missed because he left a great legacy. My sincere condolences to Lucita and the entire family. My prayers are with you all. Reply to this comment

Cary has been my wonderful friend for 66 years. We have laughed together and cried together. He loved his family and his friends and he never wavered in his support for those he loved. Praying for strength from The Holy Comforter for Cary's loved ones. Rest in peace my bff. Reply to this comment
