  3. My condolences to the family and especially Anita my prayers are with you during this time heaven has gained another angel.

  4. I am sad to learn that he has passed away. I had heard from Lynda, my sister, that he was sick, but was hoping that he would get well. I remember meeting him, and buying some things from him, at a yard sale a few years ago. Lynda, James and Jamison always spoke highly of you all and what good neighbors you are. I know he will be missed greatly. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

  5. To Our Family,
    Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so saddend by the loss of Garrill and at times like this I wish we did not live so far away. But thank God for our memories growing up visiting every summer. These are cherished memories to me. I am so thankful that we were able to speak with Garrill on Sunday evening, though briefly we could tell it was a struggle for him but we were able say I love you to tell each other and that meant everything to me and my sister. We let him know that we and our church families were praying for him.
    May God be with you all during and this time of grief and give you peace in your heart knowing HE shared Garrill with a Wonderful Family that loved him as HE Loved him.
    Sending our love, hugs and prayers from your WV Family.
