  1. My heart aches for your loss. I loved your mama and daddy whole heartedly. My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

  2. Prayers of condolescences go out to all the family. My grandmother was Estelle Garvin Jones Talbot of Augusta and back in the day when people used to “go visiting” relatives on Sunday afternoon, we would visit Wynn’s family in Hephzibah ( that would have probably been in the mid to late 60’s)My grandmother thought a lot of the family and I am guessing Wynn’s mother was my grandmother’s cousin. Years ago, the Garvin family would have a reunion, where i met some of you. All that said, when I saw of Wynn’s homegoing, sweet thoughts for a wonderful family went through my mind. For all who know Jesus Christ, it’s not good-bye, but rather see you soon in Heaven.
