I read the news of your Mother's death in the Macon paper. When I saw the Garnto name I read further to see if it was someone related to you. I am so sorry.

Only learned of the deathI of "Miss" Dorothy a few minutes ago. She was such a beautiful lady on the inside and the outside. She was a perfect example of one who is gracious. What a loss! We will pray that God will meet your every need during this time of pain. I know she would want each of you to lead happy, fulfilling lives. Much love sent your way.

Mickey, I am so sorry about the loss of your mother. She was a lovely lady who was always gracious and lovely. Even though I hadn't see her in a while, I will miss hoping to see her when I am in the Johnson County area. You and your family have been in my thoughts and prayers. I saw the obit in the Macon Telegraph, and my brother, Riley, sent me the obit via email. She was special to our family.
