“Time remorselessly rambles down the corridors and streets of our lives. but it is not until autumn that most of us become aware that our tickets are stamped with a terminal destination.”

Fall is in the air. But this is no ordinary Fall. This is Gary's Fall. All around us people are welcoming Fall and celebrating Autumn, way too early in my opinion, with pumpkin spiced lattes, apple crisps, and spicy vanilla candles. Every time I see or hear someone getting too excited for Fall I want to scream. I want to scream for them to stop rushing through the hours, days, seasons. I want to scream for them to hold onto the lazy, hot, days of summer. I want to scream for Gary. For Gary's Fall.

Gary won't see another Autumn. He fought the fight, he waged the war, he is losing his battle. Gary's summer flew by in a haze. His family celebrated his birthday, his life, his love of family & friends. They knew what Fall would bring.
Gary will fall from cancer. Gary will not fall from grace. He will fall from fatigue, illness, and weakness. He will not fall from family, love, and hope. He will not fall alone.
