David - this day - 13 Dec 12, the world was stunned by the shooting deaths of ten (10) young children, in the city of Newtown, Conn! The inner feelings of your passing on 3 Sep 03, was felt in my aging body, my heart skipped a beat, my mind wandered back to your youthful happy life as a 6 & 7th year old blue eye CHILD, dancing at Nickol Park, for both Mom & I, you were the Star in R Eyes!

We, you immediate Family Cannot Forget you!
Dear David - Your presence taught us the joy of life, which you lived.
Let us not ponder, what could have been, but rejoice in what we saw
May we all learn from your life, the sweetness you passed around.

I Still see you as a "comet" raceing for the Moon, you were the "highhopes" of our small, but ever-loving Family. But be sure, when our "courages' falters, David we only think of you, Our Love
will never Die or Fade - you can take that to any BANK!

      Taking the next pitch that reached David homeplate area, David reached &
swung that bat around, slapping the ball in the middle of the plate, and arching that little white ball some 85 feet between 2 nd base and CenterFiielder.  David ran, reaching lst Base, while his coach continued saying, "Go Go, rounding 2nd Base, everyone was hollaring Go Go, he  continued to run, not looking - just running, easily picking his feet and and laying them down.  Another loud Coach, bellowing GO HOME, as David rounded 3d Base, heading to Home Plate, everyhone seemed to forget about the incoming baseball, however David touched Home=plate, and some 21 adults in the Steelworkers section all cheered and surrounded David all dressed with a BRIGHT BLUE "S" in  THEIR bright white color CAPS, centered on their smiling faces and uncomb hair, each player hugging, and doing something the Coaches called "Give Me Five"

My 3d Born Son DAVID CRAIG GARCIA

David & I made an appointment to meet w/each other on 2 Sept 2003, when I drove to his apartment to meet w/David at 2:30pm, Unknown to me,  David had left, as he was called up to Heaven to sit-at-the-Right-Hand-Side of GOD himself.  Our Lord needed a sturdy youthful good-looking blue-eyed Spanish individual to assist St Peter, in how to accept new travels into the Kingdom of Heaven.
In leaving, David thur some unknown intellectually, in thought, reminded me of:
    Dad, Don't grieve for me, for now I am free,  I'm following the path that all Catholics follow, which God has laid for me, don't you see? My pain took away, my laugh, my love, my work, and my play. I see the peace that God offers, and I agreed to this trip. Please remember my parting with joy, friendship to all, a laugh we had!
    A Kiss from my beatiful Mother, (Marlys Ann) oh yes, I too will miss! I do wish you all,  the SUNSHINE OF TOMORROW, MY life has been fun, full of Good times, yes it ended too soon, Please lift up your hearts to me and PEACE, to thee, God asked me to SIT-ON-HIS-RIGHT-SIDE,to assist ST PETER, in how to accept fellow travelers, Just like you taught me "How to receive all those seventy-nine (79) Vietnam Refugees who fled Vietnam" so I could place them in the safety of my United States of America, during 1975 at Hamilton Air Force Base, California, our home station, as Mother was working as a Teacher at the Air Force Children's School, and you Dad, were a member of our US Army!

Billy Martin, God selected you.

     Even old Mrs Santos gave you the only AWARD during Jun 1970 for Handwriting skills you demonsrated in the lst Grade!
