A sad twist in the Passing of Garrett.

Posted by fanofphilly on Tuesday, August 7th, 2012

Well we all hoped in whispers that it was not due to old habits and many made it seem as if it was not due to old habits.  But truth be told that was not the case.  Here is a statement by Andy himself.  God bless that family….maybe they find rest in their child / brother’s everlasting peace.

“On behalf of Tammy and our family, I would like to thank everybody for their tremendous support, love, kind words and prayers during this time of great sadness. Words cannot express our sense of loss.

“We loved Garrett so much. He was a wonderful son and brother. He made us laugh, he was a pleasure to be around, he always had a smile on his face, and we will miss him dearly. We will never forget him, and we will remember him with love.

“Garrett’s road through life was not always an easy one. He faced tremendous personal challenges with bravery and spirit. As a family, we stood by him and were inspired as he worked to overcome those challenges. Even though he lost the battle that has been ongoing for the last eight years, we will always remember him as a fighter who had a huge, loving heart.

“I spoke with the team yesterday and thanked them for their thoughts and prayers. I asked them to continue with their preparations for the upcoming season until I am ready to rejoin the team.

“It is in times like these that we lean on our faith, our family, our friends, and our Eagles family. We will do so in the difficult times ahead.

“Thank you again for your continued support.

Andy Reid”
