Rosanne Garcia sat in her son's bedroom on Wednesday morning, rocking back and forth in his chair, looking at his pictures, his bed and eventually stopping at his Bible.
"Why, mom? Why me?" she remembered her son Jason asking a few weeks back.
"I don't know," she told him. "We just have to keep our eyes on Jesus and know that he's going to take care of us."
Jason Garcia, 31, guitarist for local rock band SPEAKERS FOR THE DEAD, died early Tuesday morning [Dec. 19] after fighting cancer for more than a year.
"He just stopped breathing," his mother said. "He was asleep. That was it. He just left."
On Wednesday, it was just his mother in his bedroom, rocking back and forth, looking at that Bible, looking for peace of mind.
