Condolence & Memory Journal

Rest in peace Pat Callan Garvey. Memories well up inside us in times like these.--Warm summer days at Ramshorn Pond with Grandpa, Grandma and the Ahlstrand family. Cookouts with lobster and clams! A great time to grow up. Garvey's Milk Dairy next door...Who knew Jim would be the love of your life! I remember sister Susan's wedding and seeing you for the last time. I sang Grandpa's song "The Preacher & The Bear" for the last wedding of our family. Your dad had tears in his eyes. Time and life seemed to keep us apart for so many of the remaining years. I thought of you often. You were always loved by that GREAT husband of yours along with children and grandchildren.
You will always be loved.
R.I.P. Pat
