    As a young man, just starting my career, Mr. Gibson allowed me the opportunity to briefly shadow with him and I’ll always remember how humble and kind he was. Prayers to the Gibson family.

    Teresa, Gary was my table leader in a February 1992 Walk to Emmaus in Amarillo. I met you briefly at a later Emmaus meetings. I was very impressed by Gary and was not surprised when he was later selected to head Southwestern Public Service Company. I will be thinking of you and your family as you mourn your loss.
