Re "James Garner's star rose as 'Maverick,' 'Rockford' " (Page A5, July 21): I couldn't help but notice James Garner's obituary was cut short. In this obituary, there was no mention of his winning two Purple Hearts during the Korean War. There was no mention of his being married to the same woman since 1956 or that they had two children.

We fans of James Garner, who watched him from "Maverick" to movies he made as a senior, want to read all the highlights of his life, not just what The Bee decided it had the space for.
