I am so sorry for you loss. I did not know your dad very well, but I do know that he raised Tye and that tells me that he must have been a great man. I am so sorry that your children will be missing time with their grandpa. However, I know that you will instill in your children all the good qualities that your father instilled in you. My condolences to you and your family.

Our deepest sympathy to the Bloomfield Family. He was my "HERO" when I was locked out of our pickup in our own driveway. RIP Gary.

My absolute condolences Tye with the loss of your Dad. I know he found great joy and love, watching you grow up through high school and college, along with following you in EN sports and watching you become the fine young man you are today. I remember many happy memories of years past holiday get togethers when you were younger. Carry on those traditions! Much Love, Mom- Lynnette
