    I wish I was there in person to pay my respect. I’m both angry and hurt that you were taken this way! In my heart and mind is where I will always keep you Padrino! Happiness and fond memories is all that comes to mind when I think about you. You were a strong man with a generous and peaceful nature. Your was big and you always put your family first. You were always there for me when I needed you most! I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU! I’m proud that I had such wonderful person as my Godfather! Not only a Godfather to me. But to all that needed you! You and Nina both. Until we meet again. Good journey Padrino!

  4. Uncle Mike is, was and always will be one of the good one’s. God has a plan for us all but this one I just can’t agree with. Your love for your family was second to none. We will miss your laugh, deep voice and all the nick names you would give us. Wish I could be there to support my extended Garcia family. My condolences to the entire Garcia family and friends. Love you UNCLE MIKE.
