Losing someone we love is nothing easy, but knowing that we have been able to be a part of the life of that person, we can realize that we are blessed to have been able to share in her life before she went to rest in eternal salvation. Our condolences to the whole Garcia family: Shirley, Patsy, Raul, Saul, Adam and especially our dear brother-in-law Joel, Martha, Meagan and Morgan. Your mother was a very wonderful person and she will be dearly missed. May your mom rest in and keep her blessing on your family forever. Eric, Barbara & Nicholas Arreguy
