    Dear Theresa and Tim,
    Joe and I want to extend our deepest sympathy to you and your loved ones in the loss of your sweet Mother. I read her obituary and she definitely lived an interesting life, was committed to her church and community and had a big family to love and love her. I know ya’ll will all miss her, but know, too, you have treasured memories to sustain you.
    Much love to you, our dear friends,
    Becky and Joe

    Tim, Jenny and Will your loss is a great loss for me also! Your Mom and Dad were wonderful people and first cousins that meant so very much to me and my family! I have so many cherished memories of both of them–your Dad coming home from service, their wedding, the birth of you children and the losses of those who preceded your Mom! Know that my heart is heavy but heaven gained an angel that will be missed by those of us here on earth! One day we shall rejoice when once again we shall meet again! I love each of you even though our paths don’t often cross!
    Jeanne Ross Acton, First Cousin

    Tim, Jenny and family, I am just now hearing about your loss. I am so sorry. your family welcomed us when we first moved to goodlettsville back in 1965 and I will never forget how that made us all feel, like we were always a part of you. I loved your mother dearly. she was a sweetheart to me and everyone she met and knew. she will be missed by all but by you the most. God be with you all at this time. Debbie

    I am sorry to hear about the passing of Miss Anne. The Garrett family will always be remembered as one of the foundations of Goodlettsville. Your family has always meant a lot to our family throughout the years. Your compassion for others will not be forgotten.
    May God be always with you.

    Aunt Anne will always be remembered by me for her kind and loving ways and those birthday messages typed by her little black manual typewriter that she loved so dearly. The memories I have of her will always be cherished as we have lost the matriarch of our family.
