    My deepest sympathy to the family. Met Gary in 1986 when I was managing one of the Williams Island towers. He made a presentation and we hired B & P, right away. We knew then that he was the best in condominium law. He always made himself available to his followers, very bright man.

    He will be sorely missed by all of us condo managers.

    Sorry, for your loss.
