I worked with Gundy for many years at SCI.  It was known among the inmates that "you don't mess with Gundy".  I am recalling so many memories from those years.  He might have been tough but, he had a heart of pure gold.  I loved him like a brother and even told inmates that he was my brother.  That way they knew not to mess with me. Rest in peace my dear friend.  I will think of you often and smile as I remember your antics.  God has another angel to help keep heaven smiling.

Julie called me to let me know the sad news.  Losing a Dad, and Grandpa is tough for every one who loved him. My prayer is that Jesus will help you through this difficult time and comfort you with His everlasting love and grace.
