    My heart goes out to all of Garrett’s family, friends, and loved ones. I worked with Garrett at Twill and I know how compassionate, dedicated, and intelligent Garrett was. He was not only a colleague but a friend. A kind person who always brought his humor to the forefront of our conversations.

    I am devastated. We have even more drive and reason to provide mental health care to people in need—to keep Garrett’s spirit alive.

    I only had a chance to really know Garrett professionally, much of which was remote owing to the pandemic. However, what you could tell—I imagine what most people could tell—was that he was just a good, kind person. Most people are I suppose. But you could sense a deep care and warmth from Garrett.

    As a write this, a personal anecdote occurred to me about something I once shared with him in passing. Most people, I suspect, would have given a nod of acknowledgment of what I mentioned and quickly move on, as the topic was a bit uncomfortable. But Garrett kept asking me questions. And more questions. And more questions after that. That was deeply meaningful to me at the time, and quite rare I’ve found. It strikes me so much more now in retrospect. What a good guy.

    My condolences to his family and loved ones.

    My friend Garrett and I met 15 years ago. Since then, our lives have been strongly intertwined, even though we live thousands of miles apart. It was easy to remain close to him, because he was the best friend one could ask for, and because he was remarkably fascinating. I loved hearing him talk about his backpacking trip in Europe, or the time he lived in San Diego. I loved hearing him talk about his family or about love, while citing a million books and authors and mathematical theories. I loved his beautiful paintings. I loved how he could be cooking a gourmet meal while eating grocery store donuts. How he could analyze the teachings of philosophers both in-depth also in the most hilarious way.

    Everything he did, he did with love, to perfection, and with great attention. Everybody he knew loved him, thought highly of him, and felt inspired by him. He was truly a pure soul.

    I hope he knew how deep is the grasp he had on the hearts of so many people. I hope that he knew how much he was loved, and will always continue to be.

    My friend. I love you with all my heart, and I will never stop missing you. I am grateful that I had the opportunity to be a part of your life. May you rest in peace.
