To My Family:
From Our Family Affair in Atlanta, Georgia we send our condolence to all of you. Sorrow to hear about Garlandine

Collette, I am so sorry to hear about Garlandine's passing. I will always have fond memories of our journey to Dakar, Senegal together. My prayers are with you and your family as you journey through this valley. May the peace of God give you comfort. Sincerely, Dawn Douglas-Coker

Garlandine worked in Domestic Relations Court for many years. We have missed her daily smiles since her retirement. Our condolences to her family. We know she was a beloved presence for them as she was for those of us who worked with her.

To the family, you have my deepest sympathy in the loss of your loved one. Although, your heart is very heavy now, 1 Corinthians 10:13 tells us, that God will never put more on us than we can bear. If your load is too heavy, he will help you carry it.


My deepest condolences to the family. May the God of all comfort strengthen and sustain all of you during this difficult time. Cherish your many precious memories of the happy times you shared with Garlandine.

Garlandine and I became friends over 40 years ago when I met her Mom, Ruby Jones. Later Ruby and Poppy Jake became the God Parents to my son Malik Sterling. Garlandine and I had great times together in Toastmistress; also great conversations, activities, and just plain good memories. I will miss her intellect, genuine friendship, and honest talks. Condolences, Love and Hugs to the Jones Family who became our family also.Dr. Dottie Hendricks, aka Sterling

I knew Garlandine as a Girl Scout in the same troop I was in. She had an outstanding gift for helping and advising people early on. Years ago, I met her as a judge in the courthouse downtown. We had a good reunion. My prayers for comfort to her family. Her memories will sustain you.
