    It is with a VERY HEAVY heart that I relay this email that I just received from Mo aka 'The Green Eyed Lady":

    The following message has been sent from *** via the contact form at JerzeeDevil.

    Gary Mantz (Clydetz)
    This is Mo. I am heartbroken and so sad to inform you that Gary passed away on Friday. He was so proud to be a member of the
    Jerzee devils. He was such a good person and I have a big hole in my heart.

    I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Gary, but I want to offer my condolences.

    This is a great place, and if everyone here respects him, then he must have been a great guy.

    RIP Gary. Thoughts out to those left behind.

    This was worst messages to hit my inbox in a long time. Gary was always such a good friend. This world just lost one of the best. It does do my heart good to know we found love again late in life and I'm thankful his last years on Earth were good ones Gary I know your happy to be reunited with Clydetz beyond the rainbow bridge but you left the rest of us with a heavy heart. Until we meet again.........
