July 19, 2016 – Whetstone Mts.

Today we journeyed near the Whetstone Mountains where Juan Gabriel Garcia Gallegos, age 20, was found on June 25, 2007.  He died in the Sonoran desert attempting to reach his family or a job that would support his family.

Thirteen of us spent the morning and into the afternoon searching out the spot where Juan Gabriel breathed his last and honoring his memory praying for his peace and the consolation of his family who misses him so much.  We were blessed with five visitors from Tucson today.
