Upon Cathy's death, Gary started Cathy G Charities to carry on her work with the local homeless (on streets and in shelters), Veterans Administration, anyone who has a need etc. I do pro-bono work as the charities Public Relations Representative.

Since Gary is a disabled veteran, he especially wanted to invite the relative/friends of fallen heroes to our memorial.
