    To The Garrett Family:

    I am sad to see Mr Garrett has passed away and want you all to know I’ll be praying for you too. Mr Garrett was always a comfort and help to our family and friends at Twifords and I have missed seeing him there. I used to serve Mr. Garrett at our store in Maple, The Mill Stone Country Store, when he and the others guys would stop in for a cold 6oz Coke and a pack of nabs on the way back to E.City after a funeral over here in Currituck. I always looked forward to thier visits in our store. Those were the good old days, long gone now. Mr Garrett was a true gentleman whom I always respected very much. I pray that God will bless us all in the days ahead with his peace and joy, because that is the anointing that will see us all thru these days of sorrow we’ve all had.

    Sandra, I just learned of your Dad’s death. Am so sorry I did not know it before. He was one of my favorite people and I always looked forward to seeing him when he would come to the beauty shop with your Mom. I will miss him greatly. You are in my thoughts and prayers. You have my very deepest sympathy.
