Garces community mourns Karen & David Reis
KGET - NBC17 - about 5 years
Hundreds of people turned out to a Celebration of Life at Garces High School on Friday for David and Karen Reis. Many knew the Reis family, and many did not. But, they are connected through Garces... a connection so tight, they consider it a family and they were all impacted by the loss. The President of Garces High School described the connection David and Karen Reis, both Garces graduates, shared with the people in the stands. For some, the connection and loss is personal. They are the Reis' family and friends. For others, they've only heard of the Reis siblings. "We were thinking it was just going to be Garces," said Caitlin Bernardin, organizer for the Celebration of Life event and Garces grad. "Just our friends and family, but it turned out to be the whole community. We were really thankful for those who came to support." That support comes from a tight Garces community. It's spread out across the country. But, the community knows it must come together in times of need. "
