  1. Always wondering what happened to the Garrett family in the Hollywood Hills.
    I think it went Coco, Karen, Kris, Kirby, and Kiball. I was good friends wit Krish and we worked at the Beachwood Market together. My brothers were Joe and Jeff. Coco, glad to see that your life has been such a wonderful success.
    Hello to the rest of the family. ( had contact with Lila White about 10 years ago)
