In Loving Memory

Sylvia Garcia Flores
May 4, 1949 – July 31, 2013

You were the center of all the familia’s lives …
all the holidays, birthdays and family gatherings at your house.
We even said it out loud: “The day God decides to take you home, everything will
come to a stop.”
God was listening too closely.
There is not a day that goes by that we do not think of you.
You are in our hearts and prayers forever.
We were truly blessed to have had you for the time that we had.
You left us beautiful and happy memories.
