Services took place Saturday in San Angelo for Uziyah Garcia, 10. His aunt, Leticia Garcia, read a eulogy talking of the life "Uzi" lived and how the family has been mourning.

"A couple nights ago, I got to see Uzi in my dream," she said. "I kiss him, I hugged him and told him I loved him, and he told me he loved me. I told him 'Jesus loves you,' and he told me 'Jesus loves you,' in my ear."
