Guestbook

  1. Garrett was always full of joy, and a pleasure to be around as he had a special way of making those around him laugh. Although Garrett was a lot of fun to be around, there was also a serious side to Garrett, where he was able to reason with people and fairly get them to see both sides. Though he is in a better place, he will forever be missed by us, the poor sucks he left behind.

  9. Life is but a stopping place, A pause in what’s to be, A resting place along the road, to sweet eternity. We all have different journeys, Different paths along the way, We all were meant to learn some things, but never meant to stay… Our destination is a place, Far greater than we know. For some the journey’s quicker, For some the journey’s slow. And when the journey finally ends, We’ll claim a great reward, And find an everlasting peace, Together with the lord Author unknown My heart and prayers go out to you and your family. Garret was a kind, loving, funny, generous, soul…who will be deeply missed. I know I can’t take away the pain, but I am here for you. Please let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do. Love, Kandra
