Two days after Christmas I found out that Garrett, a guy I had known from my youth group, was killed in Afghanistan by an IED. I knew him a little through other friends. One of my good friend's husband was Garrett's childhood best friend. I know many others also who are profoundly shaken up by the death of this amazing guy. Please keep the family and friends of Garrett in your prayers today and all this week.
A memorial service is being held today at 2, then his body will be laid to rest in New Mexico at the end of this week.
