To: Mammom
To you, now with all of those who you've missed for so long, I'm sure you're in your chair listening to Garrison on Saturday night. You were an inspiration to all who met you; a principal before women had careers, who always retained the grounding of that New Jersey farm. I'm so glad that you met Adam, your 25th great grandchild. So sad that you will miss the 26th. But 97 years is a long time to bind a family, say hi to Aunt Man and Aunt Edie. We miss you.
—Jared Ackers

Send a greeting!
Announce an engagement, admonish the babysitter, celebrate a birthday, or just say hi. At each live show, we collect greetings from the audience and from the Web site for Garrison to read on the air.

Each week's greetings will be collected and posted with that week's broadcast in the archive, and may be selected to be read on the air. To see your greeting, go to "Old Shows" and find the week you submitted it.
