Memorial For Joe Garcia – RIP

fr-vince-2317

joe-garcia-2315 On Wednesday, October 26, we had a memorial for our longtime house guest Joe Garcia, who passed away on October 2, at age 76. Fr. Vince Schwahn was the celebrant. Joe lived with us for 14 years. He was an avid reader and cooked some of the best pinto beans ever. Prior to getting sick Joe made sure there was always milk in the house and often brought fresh baked Mexican sweet bread home from a nearby bakery when walking home from the store. He also loved to sit and chat with anyone who cared to talk, and he loved holding, loving, and feeding our cats. He is and will continue to be missed. JOE GARCIA – ¡PRESENTE!

    Joe was a very kind man. When Jim had his “house day”, Joe would do most of the work; cleaning the bathrooms, sweeping the floors, hanging out and folding the laundry. He made it possible for Jim to be at the house and feel useful when he was failing in health. Many Blessings Joe!!! Joyce Parkhurst

    Hennacy House is not the same without Joe. Now that the Day of the Dead
    is up and includes his picture, I am reminded how he liked to look at all the
    pictures on the Altar and tell stories.
