Dennis Lanigan

Recalling my times with Gary and the Philippet Family brings back many fond and lasting memories.

Closest friends through high school and beyond, collaborating musically throughout the 60's, shaping our lives during a very turbulent, yet inspiring time, we bonded together through music and friendship.

Though many years had passed between visits, Gary's caring nature was very apparent when he came to visit us a couple of years ago. He was most concerned about our well being and was very pleased to find we were all fine, even though he seemed aware that his time was limited.

My sincere thanks to the Philippet Family for including me in their lives and to Gary for being such a good friend.
