  1. Hearts and prayer go out to Garnreiter family…I knew Bean when she was just a child, with her dad, and brothers…Love to see her big smile..always be apart of our family back in WV….Patsy

  2. To the family of Eileen: She and I were classmates at MHS class of 2006. She will be missed by many and always remembered for her smile and wit. She and I had quite a few good laughs together throughout school, and I know she is at peace and that the man who took her is behind bars. God bless, and prayers being lifted daily.

  3. It is with heartfelt thoughts and much, much sympathy that we extend ourselves to you. “Bean” was a sweetheart, who we had the opportunity to play softball with on many a Sunday night at Wilson Park. She had a contagious smile that we will remember most about her. It breaks our heart to write these words because she’s gone, but even more so given the circumstances in which she died. Please know that there are many, many of us out here who are touched by this tragedy. If there is anything at all that we can do to help during this very trying time, please don’t hesitate to contact us. (Sunday night softball at Wilson Park) God now has someone for 1st base for His softball team… (310) 540-0682
