I do not know if anyone out there will still see updates. It has been 13 weeks, one day, 16 hours, and 20 minutes, since my life changed with the loss of my sweet son, Garrett. I search for everything and anything I can find or hold that is close to Garrett. There is not just a whole in my heart and soul. There is barely nothing left of me, I feel. There is no worse pain on this earth. My counselor says I am still in shock. I guess, because I cannot wrap my brain around this, I am. I function, as I need to, but it is so difficult. If anyone out there sees this and has pictures or videos of my sweet son or even stories that you can share withe me, PLEASE, share those photos, videos, and stories here or on my Facebook page. Friend me: Angela Van Sickle. Garrett's picture will show with my name. Everyone says they wish they could help. Many can with prayers and checking in. You can also if you have pictures that I would not have. You have stories of Garrett that I do not know. Memories of Garrett are my future. You can help me. Thank you, in advance. I should have closed this page by now and will have to soon. I appreciate you! I will pray for you!

I have lots of memories of my Grandson. The one I love the most is a very recent one . As he got older he loved to tease me because I never talked or pronounce words right . I couldn’t say his tattoo or his dogs name right. He then got another dog and named it Carbon and I thank him for picking a name I could say . He laughed and said Nana I am happy I could help you out . Love you Garrett.

I went to high school with Garrett, and had the pleasure of playing French horn with him. As many others have said here, Garrett never failed to make me laugh with his witty jokes and snarky remarks. I spent many long hours sitting next to Garrett in practice, or standing next to him in set. But being with Garrett always made the time pass quicker. One time, on the bus to a competition, Garrett started drawing funny pictures on a sheet of music, and we passed it back and forth until you couldn’t see the music notes anymore, just jokes and doodles we’d scrawled across it. I wish I had that paper now. I miss Garrett’s comforting presence, how he would remind me that “nervous is a useless emotion.” Garrett was always there to make me laugh with a joke, give me a big hug, or spray water in my face (when I definitely deserved it). He will be dearly missed by many people.

I didn’t know Garrett personally but knew his dad and his dad’s brother Chris who passed in 2008 was my best friend in high school. I love the Bednarz family and want to send heartfelt condolences from the Motsenbocker family. Craig, you and your family are in our prayers. God bless.

Garrett had a very special connection with Angela; as a baby he used to tenderly hug her and if anybody dare to try to hold him, he used to hide on his mom’s chest and arms. He smiled to others only if she was holding him. He was also very sensitive to loud noises, it was common to see him covering his ears with his little hands even with music.
As soon as we met, the Bednarz family and the Diaz bonded together so well that we used to see each other almost everyday. Garrett and Carlos in one team and Meagan and Gabi in the other team. Meagan and Carlos were the opposite poles and Garrett and Gabi were the ground that neutralized conflicts., in that way there was always a very good energy flow.
We treasure every single memory, from the long hours playing all together in the swimming pool, to every special celebration like Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, birthdays, First Communions.... When they moved to Texas, they left a big empty space that was never filled out; in many occasions my husband and I talked about visiting them, but we postponed it too much...

We love you Garrett
