Never a day goes by that your not in our hearts and thoughts. Love you always Richard."

"Ten years ago today we lost a very special person in our family. Lil Rich was not just a cousin to me, he was like my lil brother. The last year of his life he spent numerous nights at my home. We joked together, we laughed together we even fought like brother and sister. The more I bitched the more he smiled. I hope he knows  that all that bitching was done out of love. He still makes me laugh today because his stories live on. He is not just a memory but a wonderful treasure that I will hold in my heart forever.
God has you in his arms Lil Rich and we will forever have you in our hearts. See you in Heaven cuz"

"Today, more than any other day, I've been compelled to smile. As I looked at my inbox of the countless tributes that have been left by your family I understand why. You touched everyone you met and left a lasting memory with that person. I will always love your company and will never forget the brief moment in time we shared. Maybe in time we will cross paths again. Even though time goes on and the distance from us to you is even greater than the year before, the freshness of your spirit always feels close. Peace."

"The alarm on my phone went off this morning at 5:30, with my sleepy eyes, trying to shut off the alarm, the first thing I saw was Forever Missed-Richard Garcia.  I laid my head back down, tears filled my sleepy eyes, pictured you just smiling.  Time dose not change a thing.  Got out of bed and went and stared at Scooter sleeping.  Thought about your Mom and Dad, did what I do best, said a prayer of Thanksgiving for the time and laughter we all shared with you."
