    Our thoughts and prayers are with the whole Garrett Family. We enjoyed our time with coaching Matt and John IV and working with John and Tim as part of Dixie Youth Baseball Mets.

    My thoughts and prayers go to you all during this time of unanticipated grief. Leslie has been a support to me and a ‘light’ in my life more than she will ever know, and I deeply regret that I never got to meet her Dad. His influence and inspiration will continue through her and you all.
