I've let myself absorb this over the past few days. Gary Amirault has recently passed. RainMusic mentioned it to me, I didn't know. When I first started following Christ, I stumbled onto his website, and sent them a long email with tons of questions. I was shocked when he wrote me back himself. Over the next couple of months we emailed back and forth, I was so grateful that he took time for me, I know how busy a Pastor's life can be. He was a great guy, who really loved Christ. And a great mentor.

Sad to lose such a wonderful neighbor in Christ...

Gary or his wife? Because I didn't see anything on Gary passing away?

Never mind, I found this upon searching:

A memorial service will be held Friday, November 9th at 10:00 a.m. at Toedtmann & Grosse Funeral Home.

Obituary for Gerhard "Gary" Amirault | Toedtmann & Grosse Funeral ...

I hadn't heard, until now.

He had a nice face. Reflective of a good spirit.

I spent some time on his site around 9-10 years ago.
He had a loving heart, and extended it to others.

Peace be with him, as he journey's beyond this life.

I had not heard of him, but if geekigurl said he inspired her, I believe he must have been a good man.
