It's time to take a minute and salute Gary. This is a very special person for me. Gary hired me in 1983 when I met him in Paris. I was a wide-eyed fan back then, totally awestruck at the opportunity to work at TSR. He truly was a really good guy: simple, friendly, and with a great sense of humor. I remember how proud he was showing me the latest games at the time, which included Star Frontiers and Gamma World if I recall correctly. That is an evening I'll never forget as it became a life-changing event for me. Shortly afterward, I ended up at the toy fair in Nuremberg. The sound of TSR's video running in the background of our booth still rings in my ear: "We are the game wizards!"
So, thank you, Gary. If not in person but in spirit, you'll always be present in my mind.
