"Dear Garcia Family,  I am so sorry for your loss. I especially
remember the pic of her with braids in her hair.  We went to Lindberg School together and I played at her house many times. We used to climb her fence and sit on top eating pomegranates from the neighbor's tree. Our mom's decorated for 6th grade graduation, Hawaiian theme."

She was a hard working cosmetologist; she had tons of clients as she was one of the best. I am so glad to see that she carried her artistic talents throughout her life. I am gratified to see how much her family adored her & I know how much more love she had to give. God Bless"
