    Yes. Very sad. He definitely had a hard life.The public and even his own family didn’t help matters much. I mean, he went years being ridiculed. Don’t wait until someone is dead to show respect. Whether he had a temper or not, no one deserved as much crap that he had to put up with. RIP.

    I dont think Gary ever got over being betrayed by his step parents,so there was always a cloud of sadness over his head.
    But when i met him about 3 years ago,he never displayed anger or sadness he smiled,was gracious,funny,and talkative.
    And thats how i choose to remember him R.I.P Gary
