Not sure what to say?

Mr. Garris was a great help to our son who worked on the turtle project in the 90's. He made such a difference in Jonathan's life and even took the time to call to let us know how well Jonathan was doing. We just wanted his family to know how much we appreciated his interest in our son. Your family is and will be in our thoughts and prayers. Sally and Chuck Greer

Clark, Kerry, Zane and family; we are so sad to hear of Mr. Garris' passing. All though we never had the good fortune to meet George we are grateful for his forestry and military service. He sounds like he was a wonderful and caring man as we have found his son Clark to be. Sending you prayers for healing and for great memories. Leslea and Vern Schofield

To Jean and the Garris family: I will never forget Jean how your father took me with you and another friend to the small island he took care of. Your father was so kind and nice to me. We all had such a wonderful time and your father talked to me and protected me just like my dad.
Jean, he is in the most beautiful place now. He is at peace and will never be in pain again. God called his name and he answered. May you and your family be encouraged and know that God will carry you through...

My thoughts are with your whole family. Uncle George will be so missed. Love to you all

We are thinking of you!

Steve and Jan

Our deepest sympathy to Wayne, Clark and family.
