Mr. Garcia was a highlight of ours twice a week. My family and I delivered meals on wheels to him and always enjoyed chatting about the Texas Rangers! He was always so kind and blessed us each time we saw him. What a tremendous legacy he has left behind! Our condolences to the family. What a gem heaven has now!
