Dear Garvey family, Your Mom was an amazing woman, mother and spacial friend. She will be in our thoughts and prayers forever. The breakfast's, tennis, bridge etc. are memories we will treasure and keep close to our hearts. We'll miss her soft, gentle, wonderful chuckle that always told us we were special to her.
