Tribute to Garry Abbott

Tribute to Garry Abbott from Bessemer. Last night a memorial service was held to remember our friend Garry who passed away last weekend. Garry and I were classmates at Greenwood Jr High and Bessemer High. I'd like to share this story to honor him. When we were in junior high we had a coach named Joe Kirkland. One day in PE class Coach Kirkland introduced us to boxing gloves. Garry and I had a demonstration boxing match on the stage. We went several rounds and knocked each other silly. I will never forget that experience. The brand of the boxing gloves was "Everlast". This brand exemplified Garry Abbott. His life will "Everlast" in our hearts.
