Not sure what to say?

I lived next door to Mrs. Garrett's sister and family in Corpus Christi, I am sure I met here through the years. My condolences to her family and to LaVerne, Glenda, Robert and Gary!

Mrs. Garrett was always kind to us. We have many good memories.

Our prayers for the entire family!

My key board skills are still horrible but what I learned in Mrs. Garrett's book-
keeping class lead me to try accounting as a major a A&I. That knowledge served me and my family well in the gymnastic club we ran and owned for 21 years. My heart is heavy at the loss of such a wonderful lady. Not only was she a wonderful teacher, outstanding Christian lady, but also a good family friend to my mom and dad. Now she rejoices with the angels in heaven and Carrie and Tom Paschal stand...

Virginia Gayle and family--Your Mom was an awesome and inspirational person! Her spirit lives on in your family and many people! Our thoughts are with you.

Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Mrs. Garrett: I have now been teaching business courses for 38 years. Thank you for being the influencing factor in this regard. Juan H. Sustaita

The world is worse off because of her passing and heaven is rejoicing in that another saint has come home.

May GOD give the family comfort in knowing she has gotten her final glory and will be an angel in heaven as she was here
