Garnett was one of the kindest souls I've ever known. She was so creative, funny, giving, with such a tender heart. We've truly lost a treasure with her passing. I miss heart and prayers are with her family and those who loved her. I'm so very sorry..

Garnett...I know I didn't keep personally in touch over the last few years except through Facebook and occasionally running into you but I will always remember the way you took care of my babies when they were young. They loved being at your house and I loved being able to spend time talking to you after work. You were truly one of God's Angel's on this earth and will be missed. I hope and plan on seeing you again one day sweet lady!
