Dear Garris Family,
I'm truly sadden about the loss of your Dad. Your Dad was a very sweet and kind man. He called me killer for unknown reasons I can't say. We talked alot about politics and God. Your Dad had a lot of wise wisdom. He will be sadly missed. May God bless your family and heal your hearts in time.
