Garre’ was my 1st cousin on my mom’s side. The last of the brothers to go home to be with the Lord and their parents. Like my sister Stacey mentioned Garre’ took us to our first Ebony Fashion Fair back in the day. We all dressed in white and we looked good too!
Last I saw you was at the memorial for Brian (your younger brother) who meant the world to me. I believe we spoke once afterwards. I’m so sorry that we hadn’t reached out more often. I will always remember the cousins who were brothers to me and my sisters. Until we meet again on the other side,
Rest In Heaven and I love❤️ you, but you already knew that.
Blessings your cousin
Carin, your Aunt Bert, and my son Al.

I will always remember the good times we shared at his grandparents house on So. 10th st, Newark, New Jersey. He always had a good sense of humor and was kind. My deepest sympathy goes out to the family. He now joins his brothers and the rest of the family there. God strengthen you during this time.
