I have a high intuition. Just now googled Gary's obituary because I felt he passed away. Sadly, it's true. I'm an old friend from Texas and have spent countless hours talking with Gary on the phone. Visits here and there. He was a good Soul. A humorous and spirited man. He loved his daughters VERY much and always spoke so lovingly of them both, and his grandkids. He was a great friend and I will miss him dearly. I'll see you in heaven Gary, when it's my time. We can joke and laugh just like always. Dang Gary, I can only be happy that you have beautiful peace now with God. And, you're with your loving parents. You are a Godly man. I'm certain you're at Peace. My condolences to your entire family.

Debbie, I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of growing up with you and Gary. The neighborhood parties, the wiffleball games, the walks around the block, kick the can, SPUD, the list goes on. It was a great childhood and the Rainey family was a big part of it. You and Gary’s family are in my thought and prayers.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Rainey for your loss. No doubt he lived a very full life, loved his family, and I know you will miss him dearly. I hope you can draw comfort from Gods word, as I have, where He promises us that there is going to be a resurrection and that we can be reunited with our loved ones again - right here on the earth. (John 5:28,29; Psalms 37:9,10) If you’d like to read more comforting thoughts from Gods word, and his plan for our future, please visit the Bible based website -

Respected, honored and loved by all his fellow surveyors. The profession will greatly miss him. He always knew the next step to be taken. Those of us left feel a great responsibility to carry own the positive attitude and resilience he exemplified.

King David wrote about our Creator, Jehovah: "Trust in him at all times, O people. Before him pour out your heart. God is a refuge for us." Speaking about himself, David wrote: "This afflicted one called, and Jehovah himself heard. And out of all his distresses he saved him." In all the distressing situations that he lived through, David always prayed to God for help, and Jehovah always came to his aid. David knew from experience that God would support him and help him to endure.
