Gary's lifelong dream would be to have Spain
recognize him for his work, by giving him
an honorary Knighthood title.
A rumor that he was rewarded the title:
Count of Toulouse has surfaced, and we will
update these pages when we find out if
it has been legitimized. Pray for us and cross your fingers!
ALLEN LULL April 10, 1940- April 18, 2010
SPECIAL NOTE FROM WEBMASTER/SON -Robin:
As I grieve the loss
of my father, I (Robin) hope that these
pages can be referred to by family, friends, and others
in order to aid them on their quest when seeking their roots.
Dad's life-long passion
for genealogy has yielded much success,
and I want to express my gratitude to everyone who
has shown interest in our efforts here and in his efforts over the years...
did what we could in the little time we had.
Harry Chapin's song, "Cat's In The Cradle" was
truly the story of our lives, we never had enough time.
So with a huge aching hole in my heart, I quote and link it here,
as it was a seriously strong theme in our lives.
I'm coming home Dad, I don't know when,
but we'll get together then, Dad
you know we'll have a good time then..."
you on the other side Pop.
