On December 5th, our precious Mother, grandmother, great grandmother & great -great grandmother passed away peacefully. She will be missed beyond words. The wonderful memories we have of Mom throughout her life will never be forgotten.
We have always given Mom birthday parties on her January 1st birthday & the most memorable birthday party was her 91st (her last birthday party).
Mom loved music & loved to dance. She was an Elvis fan & a bigger fan of Gary Garcia, the Showman. Gary was more than happy to sing for "Pinky" at her 91st birthday. "Pinky" was the nickname Gary gave Mom because she loved pink & wore a lot of pink.
Mom was so happy when Gary sang to her. She loved Elvis songs & "oldies" so much. Although she was in a wheelchair & could no longer dance, she moved her hand to the beat of the music & sang as she remembered some of words to the songs.
The attention Gary gave Mom came from the heart & Mom showed her love & appreciation by kissing Gary's hand during a song. Thank goodness for videos!
It was an unforgettable birthday- one we will always cherish.
On behalf of the family, we thank you Gary.
Thank you for your kindness, for caring, for your sincerity...and thank you for singing Mom's favorite song - "Can't help falling in love with you" at her burial.
We know she was smiling from heaven.
