    Dear Garnet’s Family,
    Our hearts are saddened to hear of your loss. Garnet was our oldest living cousin on the Harshman side. It was such a pleasure to look forward to her coming to the cousins reunion we held at our home. She always brought the best homemade cookies. Everyone looked forward to seeing her. What a sweet reunion she will have in Heaven with her family. No matter what age, it is still hard to lose our loved ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.
