I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Wyndell. I remember well the Village Rexall Pharmacy next to Piggly Wiggly in Garden City. Wyndell took care of many folks in the westside area. I know you will miss him. Thoughts and prayers for the family.

Carol Lawson, Garden City, Ga

We are thinking and praying for you doing this difficult time. We are sending special thoughts to keep you company, angles to bring you cheer and love to warn you. Be Blessed, Your neighbor.

My sympathy to the Cook family on the loss of Dr. Cook. He was a big part of Garden City before the big chain stores came along. My Grandfather had the Barber shop Kelly Newman just a couple of doors down and we would be in and out frequently shpping and getting pharmacy needs etc. with my family. We even shopped Village Rexall when he moved across the street next to Piggly Wiggly. I was blessed to speak with him last November in Sears just before we closed. He seemed pleased I recognized him and made it a point to speak to him. I was just a young boy with so many memories to share of his store and time in Garden City. He was a fine and gentle mannered man and will be missed in the communities he served. May God bless the family and friends alike who are left behind to carry on his legacy and memory. Peace be with you till we are all reunited with those we love! ?????
