Gary was a very special child born with medical issues he worked to overcome. With the help of his family, he learned to walk and talk and made friends with every one he met. Gary always lived at home until his mother passed away in 2008. A new adventure started for Gary when he moved to his new home at Good Samaritan Society in Arapahoe. They took Gary in and made him part of their family and he loved it there.
