    I remember Mrs. Garland from my childhood when I played baseball with her son Mark. She was a wonderful lady who treated all of us kids very well. My condolences to the family.

    It is a sad time for me to hear the passing of Carol. I have known the Garland’s for over 50 years. I was a brother State Trooper with Ron and was deeply hurt when we lost him. Garland’s family and mine had many fun time together that I will never forget. Brad, Mark, and John stand tall and be proud because you had a great father and mother. Love Art Allen

      Art, thanks for the kind words. We sure have long history together. I always appreciated your friendship and you being there with Dad at the end. Now they are back together.

  3. Karen(Cantwell) Keough and Issey Cantwell December 23, 2018 at 3:38 pm

    We were so sorry to hear of your Mother’s passing. My parents, Dennis and Issey Cantwell, were good friends with your parents and spent a lot of time together when my dad ran the Rifle Range and your dad was on the Sheriff’s Dept. My mom is still living and thought of your mom often and shared her memories of them with other people quite often. Please accept our condolences and know that even though we had lost touch, we never forgot your Mom or Dad and kept them in our hearts all along.
