We are so sorry to hear of Gainard's passing. He was a dear friend. We always enjoyed talking about our common experiences of having a kidney transplant. He was so encouraging and always a joy to share with and find support. We will miss him so much. Our prayers are with you, Marilyn and family. Harold & Marcella
