    So very sorry. We enjoyed getting to know Garrett when he was up at Leech Lake. We’ll think of him and toast his memory with the neighbors. Take care…

    I’m so incredibly sorry and saddened to hear of Garrett’s passing. I’ll always remember what an incredibly selfless and caring person he was. There was a time I was going through a hard time and Garrett sat and talked to me for hours. That was 20 years ago and I’ll never forget that. I remember him coming over and helping to put up my mom’s fence, someone he didn’t even know at the time. Rest in peace Garrett, you will be missed friend. I know you have some great company up there. My thoughts are with Garrett’s family and friends.

    As a neighbor, friends and his principal I have very fond memories of Garrett and his entire family. The Veals were such great neighbors. Garrett was a phenomenal athlete. He was a multi state track champion and a talented wide receiver. He had a great sense of humor. He was a talented and kind young man.
