Our Mechanic Gary Says So-Long

One of our friends and co-workers at our OK Tire shop is leaving us to teach in Ontario.  He is in the Canadian Military and he thinks this might be his last posting before he retires.  He wants to come back to the Comox Valley when he finally finishes his tours.  I made this card for the guys at the shop to sign and give at his farewell party.




I had to work in a little yellow because the OK Tire colors are black, grey and yellow.  Gary always wears black!!
