  1. Dear Dorthy and family
    I worked with Jarvis at TG&Y Headquarters.
    Then I met his Mother and Father Douglas and Lennie Dennis when I moved to the neighborhood where they lived. We shared many fond visits together and she told me many loving stories about Jarvis ggrowing up. I know he will be missed by each one that knew him . I just loved his family. My deepest sympathy is sent to each one of you. Lennie Loved each one of you all.
    my Love and may you find comfort in Gods peace.
