My Story

Garrett was a fun, bright, happy little boy. He dreamed of becoming a firefighter just like his daddy. He loved playing video games, Mario was his favorite. He learned to blow bubbles with Hubba bubba bubble gum and loved chasing rainbows. On March 3, 2008 Garrett was diagnosed with Leukemia 6 days before his 6th birthday. He hardly ever complained. He was a ray of light on a rainy day, the sunshine of my life. On December 19, 2008 it was confirmed that Garrett had relapsed. On January 9, 2009 we brought our little boy home with hospice. On Januray 19,2009 all heaven rejoiced as our little Angel was welcomed home!
