I am real sorry for your loss to the whole Gamash family. My husband and I saw Warren on Saturday to see how he was doing and he told us that he loss his brother. It has only been 11 months that my mom had pass away (Mary Lou). It is tough to loose a parent. I hope he is up there fishing away and making my mom laugh. Take Care

I will really miss you , we had 40 years together working and fishing I can recall many times when I had to help you when you almost cut your finger off it took a few sips of the hard stuff before we could finally bandage you finger up. I will never forget all the fun times we had ice fishing, I would get on the pond at 7 am and I would see you show up at 9 or 10am. Till we meet again find us a nice pond full of trout, love you

52 yrs today we said I do now Iam about to tell you how much I miss and love you, so much unsaid, if only we knew how hard it is to say goodbye. I still hear you here, but the room is empty and so is my heart. I will miss you till the end of time. I will see you again and when I do you better not be fishing, or I will go to bingo, till then I love you so much.
