Mother told to remove deceased son's memorial in southeast Harris County

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A mother whose son was hit and killed by a car may have to remove the child's memorial from the accident site.

Abraham "Bubba" Garza, 8, was killed in 2012 when he was hit by a car on Blackhawk Blvd. His mother, Crystal, visits the site of the accident regularly. Three wooden crosses and a few decorations mark the spot where Bubba was hit.

Garza found a citation from the Sagemeadow Maintenance Committee on the ground next to the memorial Thursday. The note reads: "Sorry for your loss. Please remove from median."

Garza does not want to remove the memorial.

"It would devastate me again," Garza said, "This reminds me that everybody cares."
