I knew Mr. Laws when he used to come to store across from his home. He was always talking about his garden. Sometimes he would just come over to see how I was I am thankful that I was able to know him and he was like a family member.
Sorry for your loss.

Garlen was the most humble and sweetest man I’ve ever known, and it was always a joy and privilege to visit him and Thelma. He will be missed, but we’ll meet again in heaven. Much love and prayers Randy, Kenny, Brenda, and all the family.
