    I am so sorry, Janie. I just got home from the beach and found out about Garland. You have my deepest sympathy.

    Mrs Janie I am so very sorry for your loss. I was looking for information on our neighbors service arrangements through Strickland and saw the notice about Mr Garland. I did not hear until now. You are in my prayers.

    I worked with Garland in the photo lab. He was a great guy and easy to get along with. There can only be one Garland.
