He always had a smile and a hug. I can remember when he would come over to Aunt Mable's in his cop car. My mom (Pat) and dad (Bee) would tell us that if we got into trouble he would come and lock us up.so many great memories of our cousin and the family. Scott prayers for you and your family, All my love to you.

So sorry to hear of Garland's passing. I have several childhood memories of his and my Uncle's friendship. He was always kind and had a great sense of humor. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Scott and his family.

Papa G was always a kind gentle man that always had a smile and hug for you. He was a good man that will be missed.

Lt. Halbrook was a good guy, always a straight shooter. I enjoyed working for him in my early days on patrol. He had a fair, common sense approach to serving the public and he seemed to be one of those people who had the knack of getting along with anyone and everyone.
I'm glad I was able to say hello [and good-bye] to him in his last days. I told him a lot of what I've written here and, as in his policing days, he listened while I spoke. He was always that way -- a good listener.
Thoughts and prayers are with Scott and family through this very difficult time.
