  2. Alameda Yacht Club has an enormous hole in its heart. It will take three people to do all that she did on her own. 8 bells for our Commodore ……..

  3. Uncle Gary, Gina, Len and Rita – our love and prayers are with you. Auntie – I love you … say hello to Nonnie and Nonno for me.

  4. I was so sorry to hear the news. Unfortunately, I didn’t hear about the Celebration in time to attend. My best wishes to you, Gary, and the family for strength and healing! Please let me know if there is anything I can do!
