With hearts as heavy as the earth
We regret to inform that Ordy Garrison passed away of a heart attack this morning July 4 2023
There are no words to describe the pain
He was the light of my life
The beating of my heart
My best friend and companion
My world
He leaves behind his beloved wife Kate
And his beloved son Carlos
We love you both fiercely
We are heartbroken eternal
These are words
But there are no words
We love you Ordy
without end
