Garland loved his family, his friends, fast cars and playing pranks. He was taken care of by some of the best health care workers in the industry, the reason for his long life following his accident at 17 years of age. We cannot thank these people enough for following their calling. We would also like to specifically thank Shelby Baptist for their compassionate and respectful care of Garland and our entire family this last week.
In lieu of flowers, we ask donations be made to Central Alabama Wellness in Calera, AL.
