BABY SISTER IS GONE
One day it happened, In the blink of an eye So tragic her life ended, Without a chance to say goodbye. The sisterhood is gone, She left us all Without a goodbye kiss She was the kind of girl, The one we will always miss. Gone but not forgotten, Is what they say. Of course that is true . . . But if only you could of stayed.
Your loving family, Mom - Maria Esperanza; Sisters - Lydia E. and Diana L.; Brothers - Alberto Jr., and Juan C. Sanchez Cerda.
In Memory of Dante Garcia
11 March 1988- 17 March 2005
In memory, A thousand times we needed you, A thousand times we cried, If love alone could have saved you You never would have died. A heart of Gold stopped beating, Two twinkling eyes closed to rest. God broke our hearts to prove, He only took the best. Never a day goes by that you’re not in Our hearts and our souls Loving and remembering you, always, Mom & Dad, Talia, Petrie, Duque, Yeshua

A father teaches self confidence and the freedom to choose who we are. To do what we can and to solve our problems the way we know. He also shows us how to appreciate life so we can find happiness in whatever comes our way. A true father works hard. He sacrifices for his family but seldom waits for a word of praise. A father like you is always there in mind in heart. Today we’re here thinking of you with love and pain this sad day. You’ve gone to heaven but we’ll always remember you dad. You were a blessing to this family, so in return we are here with many blessings for you in this farewell. We’ll miss you forever, someday we’ll see you again. Love you always, your beloved wife, son, daughters, grandchildrens and friends.
