The news of my brother Gary’s passing while not unexpected was nevertheless difficult to hear. Gary was a very close and dear brother to me. Gary (officially Gerald Benson Wunrow) was seven years older than I. His presence and influence in my life was very strong. Until Gary left for his ministry studies at Concordia Senior College and Seminary, he was always there, truly a source of calm and comfort and information. I was a young adolescent when he went off to St. Louis. I missed him greatly, as I faced growing up without his daily presence. Fortunately, and despite distance limits, we enjoyed many subsequent visits and conversations. My six children also share wonderful memores of Uncle Gary. He will be missed sure, but my many wrm memories will live on. I look forward to more quality time with Gary and our Lord.
