Thank you for treating me like your own and putting up with all of our teenage antics. Thank you for all of the camping trips, for letting us take the Firebird all the time, for letting us use all of your newest technology. My memories growing up are entwined with so many great memories of the Garrison family. I think I spent more time at your house than mine. Sending all my love to Kay, Melinda and Steve. 💛
