When my Uncle Garland was a teenager he lived with our family during high school. He was about age 16 when he was learning to play golf, learning from his big brother James (my dad). One day while practicing his chipping in the back yard, our very young Chihuahua, Rosie walked right in the line of fire and Uncle Gar launched the little thing. She was out for a few seconds and we all panicked! Then she got up, staggered a little, and was fine. She lived a long , 17 year life. However, my sister, brother and I never got close to Garland anytime he had a club in his hand! This was obviously the first chapter of his long love affair with the game. Jeri probably has heard this story from him. He loved to tell stories. He was such joy to me when I was young, and we had even more fun as adults! Our family will miss his smile, and that contagious laugh! God Bless him.

Dear Geno:
We've played our last round of golf here on earth together, but you will still be in my heart each hole going forward. I love you brother and thank you for the memories. I'll take it from here and will see you again.
Love,
Doug
