  1. Garriotts,
    So sorry to hear about your father/ father-in law/ grandfather. I know it is hard when you lose someone dear to you. We will be praying for you all. Hopefully, knowing that no one can ever take away the precious memories you have of him will help you through this time. And having the Lord to carry you through will lift you up. Let us know if you need anything.
    Love, the Barretts

  2. Our sympathies are with you Kathy and your family. God be with you at this sad moment and your family.
