Dear Lucille and the Garrett Family,
I would like to express my condolences on the passing of Robert Kenneth Garrett, father, husband, and grandfather.
I met Robert in December 2012. We became friends very quickly. Robert and I shared comradeship slnce he was in the Navy and I was in the Army. I will always cherish our daily waves every morning and our most pleasant talks.
Robert was very kind and gentle. He was also a man of God, and although he is physically gone I am at peace knowing that he is with our Heavenly Father. Robert and I were not just neighbors but we were friends.
What ever soothes your spirit, comforts your soul, and brings you peace that is what I wish for the Garrett Family during this difficult time. If I can be of any assistance at any time please do not hesitate to call upon me (502-322-3267). I Love you all. May God bless you all.
