Just in all the comments about Mr. Garrison you walk away knowing he had a beautiful spirit. To the Garrison family, I pray that I can leave a name like Mr. Garrison, he reminds me of Ecclesciates 7:1 7 "A name is better than good oil, and the day of death than the day of one's being born."
He made his name for himself and I can only hope to imitate him.

Goodbye Uncle Sam. Your life has passed. We've loved you and weep for you. It takes courage to let you go. But we know that your loved ones don't go away, they walk beside you everyday. Your journey may take you away, but we will meet you in heaven one day.
