I prayed today for trust in the Lord's plan. We don't know what he has in store for each of us and we do not know why. All we can do is have faith in him and trust in him. I prayed for peace for all of the aching hearts and painful tears. Kevin and I were never close, but I have known him for over 17 years now. He was my husband's very best friend. Kevin was always there for Greg when no one else was. Now that he is heart broken once again with the pain that it our reality, Kevin is not here for the first time to help Greg get through this. The only thing I know to do, is to ask the Lord for his healing, guidance and, for his love at this most painful time. And, I ask Kevin to show us that he is here with everyone who is missing him so dearly.
My deepest condolences to the Garrett Family and friends. May God be with us all.

remember all those times you would sit on the back porch and watch me on my playground? or when we would play on the wii together and i’d get mad because you beat me? how about all those times I would cry and cry and cry because I missed you after being dropped off at daycare? I remember those memories because that’s all I have left of you.. I always call you hoping you would pick up..but I get to hear your voicemail because I know i’m hearing your voice. I miss you daddy...
I love you!
I miss you!

Kevin was very kind hearted and shined a big and bright light to all he came across. I enjoyed speaking with him at the BMX track weekly where it was fun to watch him ride and enjoy his time on the track. He was very proud of his daughter and always enjoyed having her there with him at the races. Sending love and prayers to his friends and family. Will miss Kevin and think of him often.

I want you to know how much you have impacted my life, when I came out to your first practice I had no clue how to even throw a softball and hold a bat. I know I wasn’t the best but you never once gave up on me and without your support I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you for teaching me to believe in myself and pushing me to my limits throughout practices to achieve my goals as an athlete. I know I may have not been your most talented athlete, but I gave you everything I had since you've shown me you believed in me. You've been there for me through countless hours in practices and all the struggles in between every workout and game. You've been known as more of a coach, but I've also known you as a teacher, therapist, and role model . I've learned winning isn’t everything and losing isn’t the end of the world because as long as I'm happy and doing what I love that's all that mattered. Thank you coach Kevin for always believing me and teaching me to never give up. I just want you to know I will be playing for you every step of the way. I love you coach and I know you’re up in heaven hitting home runs for us! #playforcoachk
