In Loving

Memory

from Garcia's Kitchen





Andrew was an organ donor who donated his heart, liver, and kidney. Andrew told us if anything happened to him he wanted to donate his organs. People have asked me if Andrew actually said this; they meant it in a good way because he was so young and understood what he was saying. We would have never donated his organs if he hadn't told me. To fulfill his wish was the hardest thing I've done in my life. Andrew was awarded the Real American GI Joe award posthumously 29 years ago in Washington DC. Andrew, it has been 29 years, but feels like yesterday. We love and miss you so, so much. You have not and will not ever be forgotten. I know in my heart I will be able to hold you again. Son, you make me try harder to meet you at the gates of heaven.

Love you always,

Your father, Dan Garcia

and Family
