The Reike Center is a true shelter from the storm. Gary was fearless and huge hearted in his gifting to the community of his time, treasure and talent. He was the paramount public servant- always present for those in need or for those just needing a work out and a fresh perspective. His lasting gifts to our community, really underline that each of us can truly make a difference. We can keep his dream alive, we can do it!
Forever grateful, Mary
