Jenn and Jason I am so deeply sorry for your loss! Gary was a great guy and it was my pleasure being able to have known him all these years. You and Jason were the core of his life and he adored you both. I will miss his gentle soul and seeing him on weekends and during the week when he would review slides. No matter how busy he was he always had time to talk. You and Jason are in my prayers. ❤

Dear, Jen, Karen, Jason, Alan and the rest of the family. My deepest condolences for your loss. Gary was one of my best friends from Bucknell. Unfortunately, I have not kept in touch. None the less, I feel this terrible loss.

Dear Jen, Jason and family,
My sincerest, most heartfelt sympathy to each and every one of you. Dr. Daum will truly be missed. Unfortunately, he lost a tough battle that he was fighting each and every day and was taken from all of you much too young. He was a truly dedicated Pathologist to all of Main Line Health Labs, Main Line Pathology Associates and to Main Line Health. He was truly a blessing to work with. He taught me so much in my career and unselfishly never hesitated to offer help and advice whenever needed. He leaves behind many fond memories. I am glad I had the opportunity to know him and work with him. May Dr. Daum rest in peace, free of no more pain and suffering. He truly loved all of you. May God bless you and keep you in his loving care. May the happy memories live on in your hearts forever.
