This is my friend Gary – Gary Benz. Chances are you know Gary already. I met Gary sometime after we moved to Franklin in 2004. For a few years we were merely acquaintances. I knew him as our very friendly neighbor that loved to make people laugh and would do crazy things to put a smile on someone’s face. But then in 2010 I started to get to know Gary better and over the years he has become a big influence in my life. Let me tell you about the Gary I know.
