David Garrison was a loving and fun person to be with. I remember working with him at VBS on the bible stories and seeing his creativity and love for the children come alive in the story and in the acting. When we went to men's conference together, you could feel his love for God thru his praise, afterwards in fellowship he was full of pleasant stories and jokes. A pleasure to be around. I enjoyed spending time with him. I remember spending Thanksgiving with the Garrisons and it felt and was with family. He will be missed. You know an artist by the paintings they have done and left. Looking at the memories and people he influenced for the better, David Garrison made and left a masterpiece.

My prayers are with all that knew David. He is a caring man and it was my pleasure to have him as a part of my family. I am the lucky one that got to marry his birthday present that he asked for on his tenth birthday. Debbie , Jennifer, and Jeff I am always here for you and your family.
Loving you always,
