The only memories that I have of Garrett are of a warm, happy, loving, caring, beautiful soul. He was an artist by nature, in that way taking much after our grandmother I suppose. I hadn't spent much time with him since we were children really (and I admit that sadly) but he was someone I felt very close to at that time, ... not only because we were the same age and spent many family holidays together at my grandmother's house in New York, which is such a special place in its own right, as were the times that we were all spent together there... but because with Garrett there were no pretenses or attitude or ego to get in the way of just being close. He was just such a good person. The photo here captures so well the genuine smile that I remember. You will always be remembered with fondness and love Garrett.

I worked with Garrett at CVS in Beverly for quite a few years, he was an amazing person. We were all like a family there. He was such a gifted artist always loved looking at the new pictures he would bring to work. He will be greatly missed you couldn't ask for a nicer person. My greatest sympathy is with you. i am truly sorry for your loss.
