Martina F. Garcia

have a memory or condolence to add?

John Richard (Ricky) Farias

March 24, 2019

I want to send my deepest condolences to the Garcia family. I will always remember Aunt Martina. Her smile, laughter and love were always shining from her. I'm still holding on to the wonderful memories of fishing in Pt. Lavaca, driving through Riverside park and the incredible meals we shared. I will miss her so very much but she will always be in my heart.
