  • My husband and I were friends of Garfield and his fiancee, Joan, before he passed away. The news devastated us all. The way he acted as a soldier, and the way he died, was just the way Garfield was. He was a good person, through and through, and we’re proud to have known him. He’d be pleased, I’m sure, and honored at having the library named after him. I know his mom is very proud, indeed. She had a very wonderful son!
