Joe Louis Garcia

In Memory of Joe Louis Garcia Aug 1, 1964-May 15, 2012 It's hard to believe that a year has gone by and yet the pain still lingers with every tear that falls. You are missed terribly by your entire family while the memory of you is our constant comfort. I know within the depths of my heart you left behind a piece of your soul in each person that you touched during your lifetime. I am still amazed at the greatness of you that is expressed by those who knew the wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend you always were. Even in your absence you continue to be such a blessing in the lives of your children. Every day I see a part of you that lives within them. You would be so proud of their strength, courage and who they are becoming because of the lessons you instilled in them. Through them and my faith in God, I find strength to face the days ahead and move forward. We miss you so much but I am so grateful you are rejoicing in all the glory that God promises each one of us. I hope you're able to watch over us, one day we'll see each other again. We all send our love and hugs towards heaven for you today. Your loving wife, Delta.
