I haven't seen Garnett in many years. My first thought of him is him calling me "blue tubes" and how he amazed us kids one night at FoxFire in Allen, sitting by the campfire,by crushing a white rock in his mouth. He did it just because we said he couldn't. Terri and Butch Eastham's son, Phillip, remembers Garnett reciting the "ole mama bear" saying. He was always a joy to be around, certainly never a dull moment. I hate that I hadn't seen him in so long. The Jackson family sends their sympathy. MICHELLE KAYE JACKSON, February 5, 2004 I will miss Garnett's hunting stories. He shared one about Dove hunting that I will always treasure. He will be missed. I will see you again, brother. Don W.
