Texas shooting orphan Lyliana Garcia penned down an emotional note as she lost her mother in the Uvalde school shooting and her father died of a heart attack in the grief of her mother's death.
"I will spend the rest of my life fighting for you and mum. Your names will not be forgotten. Your daughter, Lyliana," she wrote in the emotional note on a memorial.
"Your Heart Could Not Take It"
Her mother Irma Garcia, a teacher in the Robb Elementary School, died last Tuesday when Salvador Ramos opened gunfire. While, two days after the shooting, her father Joe Garcia died of a heart attack after paying tribute to his wife.
"Dad, I know this was too much for you. Your heart could not take it," wrote Lyliana wrote on a heart attached to a cross-bearing Joe's name that has also been placed at the site, along with other symbols of grief and mourning.
Irma and Joe have left behind four children Cristian, 23; Jose, 19; Lyliana, 16 and Alysandra, 12 and one more.
