Dr. Gary Morey passed away Monday afternoon, as SFGN prepared this week's issue for publication.

Stated Christina Bontempo, the Broward HIV Planning Council Manager, “For the past 16 years, Dr. Gary Morey volunteered his time and expertise with the Fort Lauderdale/Broward County HIV Health Services Planning Council. His experience, knowledge and commitment toward the cause will be missed by all who knew him.”

His words of wisdom can perhaps be summarized best in his own words from a letter sent to the Council last week: “From provider to Council and various committee members and consultants, I've been able to gladly and proudly donate time where I thought it would be of most benefit to others. I wish to THANK all the dedicated people who have served before me, alongside me and will afterward into the future, struggle in this noble cause. I wish all that remain to continue this vital battle to provide the best quality of services that the PLWH/A's of Broward County deserve! Gary."
