You will definitely be missed. You were so funny. I keep thinking of your saying, "Did I say you could be sad and not to tell anyone?" You were such a comedian. You would say,  "Did I say you could smile." I’ll miss you.  Krystal White

Gary was a great man. He was a fun person to be around. He asked me to help him pull trailer to South Dakota and then to Las Vegas. We pulled his mustang up to Vegas to get sign and his trailer to get rapped. We were in Vegas for a month. Well I was, he stayed longer. I took that time off work, and my daughter Gwen came up and flew back with me. We had the best time me and Gary. We were just friends and it's was a time that I will never forget...... And when we were in South Dakota he showed me his house and I did some secretary work for him and he took me through the town show me where you grew up and showed me all his land. I'm telling you, Gary was a great man and a great father. He loved his kids. On the trip to South Dakota he talked about his kids and on the trip to Vegas he told me how much he loved his kids. I am Grant Mies mother-in-law and I have known Gary for a long time and nobody's perfect. The only one on this Earth that was perfect is Jesus Christ. We all make mistakes and I'm telling you right now, he was a good man....... And at the end of the day and every day Mr. Gary Mies Was A Good Man. Grant, Randy  and Cindy, I am so sorry for your loss. I have already had to walk down this road and it don't get easier. You just learn to live with it. Losing a parent is very hard. Death is hard but the only way you get through it is with God. He will help you if you can let him ❤️. And to Mrs. ANDREA MIES, I AM SO SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. I'VE LOST A HUSBAND ALSO AND YOU JUST LIVE WITH IT AND YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT. GOD WILL HELP YOU I'M SO SORRY HONEY.
