I was able to know you your entire life. I was truly lucky to have such a great brother like you. You always knew how to make me laugh and smile. My favorite memory was in high school some girl was running her mouth to me. So i decided to fight her. Well i took my heels off and earrings and out of no where you came and stood in front of me and said she wasn’t worth it. Everyone that knew you weren’t the person to talk someone out of fighting. But that day you decided to. You wouldn’t move out the way. You kept saying I can’t let you hit her that’s my job. I’m the one mom is supposed to be mad at for fighting not you. Then Coach Koch picked me up and put me in his room. You stood there with that girl and told her you just saved her from an ass whooping. You were always my world and still are. I love you so much Garrett. I will always love you. I know your in heaven with Dad watching over me. God gained a Great Angel. I miss you!

Garrett came over to Madison's house one night, and it was storming terribly. One of the umbrellas that was on the back porch had gotten loose and was flying around the yard. I went outside to catch it, but I barely had a chance to get my hands on it because when it was almost in my hands Garrett comes sprinting down the hill and snatches it out of the air. He was running so fast it looked like he was flying. Every time I think about that night, it just reminds me of how much he did for me, for everybody else. He was always available, even when he wasn't supposed to be. I love you, Garrett. Rest easy, big brother.

While Garrett was playing high school football Tatum was playing Lufkin in Lufkin so I attended his game with Grams. After the game I’ll never forget the first thing he did was wipe his sweat on me, like any good big cousin would, and then I recieved the best and stinkiest hug. He was playful, strong willed, goofy, protective, caring, and loving. He may not have lived in our neighborhood but he was just as much a part of our circle. I love you big Garrett.

I have struggled knowing what to say other than we are so sorry for your loss Monica. We will continue to pray that God will keep his arms wrapped around you and Ashley and bless you with peace in your heart knowing Garrett is no longer feeling any pains. Love to all of you.

Garrett, I know I already wrote a memory but day by day this just gets harder and harder. I miss you so much. I miss your sarcasm, those big bear hugs you gave to everyone, the six flags trip we took and you almost getting us kicked out, living with us for over a week and me making fun of how bad your feet smelled, you eating everything you could find in my fridge and pantry, helping me clean up that pile of trash that took 3 hours bc we were just goofing off the entire time, me you and Ann rapping to crazy rap song, me getting so mad at you that you’d always, always, always, seemed to call me right before I went in to see a patient and got even more mad when I realized we had been on the phone for 30-45 minutes each time and got zero work done, you getting your truck stuck in my front yard and had to get dirt to come pull you out with his mini coop LOL, our group chats and how funny you alway made it, you throwing up in my bathroom sink bc apparently the toilet was one step to far for you to go and then having all of us laughing our heads off bc you started shoveling it out with a spoon bc I refused to clean it up. Man I’m going to miss you. You were the type of friend that was always there, no matter what. You drove me insane 99.9% of the time but I loved you and you knew that, thank you for loving me as well as all your friends. I will never forget you. Rest easy love

Garrett... I know I already wrote a memory but day by day it seems to get harder and harder. I miss you so much; your sarcasm, those big bear hugs you gave everyone, the bon fires, cleaning up trash for 3 hours behind my house bc we just kept goofing off, you getting stuck in my front yard and dirt pulling you out with his mini coop, living with us for over a week and me making fun of how awful your feet smelled, you throwing up in my sink bc apparently the toilet that was just a foot further was to far away and then all of us dying laughing bc you decided to shovel it out with a spoon bc I refused to clean it, me griping at you bc you always seemed to call me at the worst time and make me even more mad that we’d be on the phone for 30-45 minutes when I was supposed to be working, eating all my food at the house, our six flags trip and how you almost got us kicked out, me you and Ann rapping to crazy rap song, and so. Much. More. Lord I miss you. You were the friend that was always there no matter what and I’ll forever miss that. Thank you for loving me and driving me absolutely insane 99.9% of the time. Our whole group will miss you; me, Joshua, Ann, Mike, and Autumn. Our group chat still makes me laugh to this very day. I love you dude.
