Dear LaGarry family,
My deepest condolences to each of you. I just lost my own mother, Mary Turner, on St. Patrick's Day ( and my dad 8 months prior to that). My mom always had wonderful memories of working at the flower shop with your mom and dad and would speak of you all often with me. While it was a long, long time since we have all been in touch, please know that your mom, dad and family truly enriched the lives of others. God bless you all during this difficult time, and always . With love, Taralyn (Turner) Quigley.

Stacie, so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a wonderful person! I can remember walking to the florist shop to get flowers and she always had a kind word and a great smile. Those were some wonderful times having your parents in our neighborhood, what a wonderful family you all were. Sharon Charleson Thompson
