  1. Love to you and the family Kaye. My love to you too Pa. I will always carry you in my heart. Until we meet again, xo.

  2. Kaye,I am feeling so much regret for not getting out to the coffeehouse nights. The extraordinary carving that Garth created of the Natives and cougar hangs above my fireplace and everyday that I look at it I think of both of you. We’ve had few visits in the past but I’ve always had such a good feeling when we did meet. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  3. So sorry to hear of Garth’s passing. My sincere condolences to Kaye and the family. Garth was a respected fellow musician and I’ll always remember his friendly face, wonderful mandolin playing, and his help in moving me into my home in Barnhartvale in 1997. You will be missed Garth. You’re all in my prayers.
