Iliana Rose “Lilly” Garcia, September 13, 2011 – October 20, 2015

 A victim of road rage….Her Dad did something on the interstate to upset a driver trying to get some place in a hurry…I guess he cut the man off and made him so mad he started shooting. He missed the driver, but shot the daughter. What a shame….Such a precious little girl. It saddens the family so, all of Albuquerque, and all of the nation. May God Bless her family and know that she rest in the arms of Jesus. It brings tears to my eyes just to write about it and I know the family’s hearts are breaking as they say goodbye for now to this little girl. Join me in praying for the Garcia family…Pete Hester

When I originally heard about this incident on the national news, it seemed like just another road rage case where both parties were perhaps equally a fault. The pictures of Lilly on this website brought home the fact that it wasn’t just another road rage, It is such a tragedy for the family. May her soul rest in peace and may her family cope with their loss. She was such a bright young girl who would have been ready to enter UNM in just 15 years. Since that can never be now, that is the worse tragedy, not only for the family but for the state and the nation.

Thanks, Errol..
