"Saw the obituary in the Ironton paper, Sorry to hear the news. Many fond memories, his birthday was the 21 of June, mine is the 22 of June and I never let him forget that he was a day older than me. Mark and the boys are in our thoughts and prayers."

May the Lord be with the McGirr family in the loss of Mr. Garilyn. We've recently became his neighbors and enjoyed his visits to our front porch in his mobil chair.
