Celebrating the life of Ubie Garland Jenkins
Thank you for signing Ubie Garland Jenkins's Guestbook
Very saddened to hear of Mr. Jenkins passing. He was a very kind man and looked out for everyone in his neighborhood. He stopped me a few times to let me know what was going on and always waved hello when I was visiting my family. May I get to see him in paradise free from pain and troubles from this life.

Oh my dear Garland. I am going to miss you very much! I have many memories of us as children and teenagers and then adults. The times you would come by and pick me up when Moma and Daddy went to work at night and we would scoot around Florence, boy we thought we were something in those days. You always called me on Christmas morning and wished Ernie a happy birthday. I am going to miss those calls. You will forever live in my heart and will always be missed by me. I love you forever and ever.
