Mi nombre es Iris Ortiz Torres y todavia tengo el periodico cuando ocurrio esta terrible tragedia. Pues yo tengo tres hermanos que no conosco, dos mujeres y un hombre que imajino tendran unos ochenta años. Este retrato se parece mucho a un hermano mio. Mi papa se llamaba Ramon Ortiz y sus hijos eran de Bayamon. Mi papa vivia en Mayaguez, y despues nos mudamos a Nueva York. Si la familia cree que podamos son de la misma familia por favor de mandarme un mensaje si asi lo desean, de todas formas me quedare con este periodico ya que al verlo senti algo especial, que Dios los bendiga.

En tragedias como la ocurrida ayer en Colorado, es cuando se vuelven a revivir las sucedidas en el pasado, como en la cual injustamente Juan Ramon dió su último respiro en vida. Siempre me recuerdo de Juan por su sobresaliente currículo académico y las muchas veces que por años nos cruzamos en los pasillos del Colegio.

Que descanse en Paz...

I did not know Juan personally, but I did work right next to his sister Rosa last year. I had the pleasure of hearing so many great things about him, his family and how close everyone is. As the one year mark approches all I can do is think about what a wonderful guy he was and what a great family he has. I will forever think about Juan and his family on this day and know that every year I will light a candle in his honor.

Aunque no conoci a Juan Ramon por sus fotos y todas las qualidades que mencionan los que lo conocieron se que fue generoso y tierno. Descansa en paz Juan, nunca te olvidaremos.

Les compadezco mucho a todos que perdieron la vida en esa tragedia y tambien a la familia de ellos. Que guarde en mente la promesa y esperanza que Dios nos da al decir que un dia va a haber resurreccion donde Juan vuelve a disfrutar de la vida. (Juan 5:28,29)

Pienso mucho en esta tragedia. Es algo tan increible, veo tantos jovenes con talento, dispuestos a crecer y aportar al pais. De momento un salvaje acaba con sus vidas en un segundo. Es algo que todavia no acepto. Juan donde quiera que estes se que estas muy bien, satisfecho con lo que lograste, tal vez inconforme por lo que no culminaste. Sin embargo sabes que en algun momento te reuniras con todos los seres que amaste. Te queremos, tu hermosa sonrisa no la olvidaremos jamas.
May 22, 2007
que dios te bendiga
may God bless you

Hasta pronto mi amigo, aunque no te conoci.
Tu irreparable perdida acrecenta el misterio del porque de tu partida junto a tus otros companeros. Eres fruto del amor que tus padres derramaron en ti y que ahora retolla en la eternidad agradando al creador.

Take comfort in knowing that now you have a special guardian angel to watch over you.

Yo no conoci a Juan Ramon pero he oido tantas cosas lindas de el. Como decoraba su casa en Navidades, iba con su papi a tocar en una banda, su preparacion academica impresionante. En definitiva un gran muchacho con una sonrisa que te das cuentas que era un ser lindo por dentro y por fuera. Que ejemplo para ninos boricuas...el sera un modelo que muchos queran seguir.

Estamos orando por sus padres y por todos los que lo conocieron y lo quisieron pues deben estar pasando por un tiemp terrible.

Que Dios te Bendiga y te guarde en su gloria nino bueno.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise up, slowly, Angel.
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly midst the faces,
In sorrow now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh unyielding truth
That Death could steal my loved one
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel.
Do not leave me here alone,
Where the warmth of mortal essence
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes
Whispered through the drying leaves,
And caress my brow with raindrops
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise up slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song
Which calls you through the shadows
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in your downy cape
Of sunshine, warm with love,
And kiss a tear-stained mother's face
With moonlight from above.

Then wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond,
And guide me safely homeward
To your world,which lies beyond.

Just spread your wings and take me
In reunion’s sweet embrace,
And we shall soar, together,
To a different time and place.

To The Ortiz Family:
I am writing this brief note to your family because I so deeply feel that when we are faced with the sudden loss of someone so very dear to us that it is one of the hardest things in our lives we will have to face. Yet, I would like to share with you something that touched my heart, it is the knowledge that God will respond to our persistent prayers to help us through any tough time such as this. At Philippians 4:6 and 7 it says that "the peace of God that excels all thought will guard your heart and your mental powers." Please know that my prayers are with you at this time and I urge you to continue to pray for strength to get through the rough moments ahead.
April 30, 2007
To The Family of Juan Ramon Ortiz-My sympathy goes out to your family. Always look to God's Word for comfort & strength to help you endure this difficult time. Revelation 21:3,4 promises that soon sorrow, sickness & even death will be done away with. Also take comfort in knowing that Jehovah God does care about you and He has the power to resurrect our loved ones.(John 5:28,29)
April 28, 2007
My deepest sympathies.
April 28, 2007
May God be with you each day.
April 28, 2007
Siento mucho su pérdida.
No te conocí pero sé que la vida es el tesoro más preciado que uno puede tener y nadie, absolutamente nadie tiene derecho a arrebatarnosla.
Tú y tu familia siempre estaréis en mi corazón.
April 27, 2007
Father we entrust our brother Juan to your mercy. You loved him greatly in this life: now that he is freed from all its cares, give him happiness and peace forever. Welcome him now into paradise where there will be no more sorrow, no more weeping or pain, but only peace and joy with Jesus your Son, and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
May God hold Juan in the palm of His hand. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. My deepest sympathy.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss, there are no words to make it easy on yourselves right now, but time would heal your sorrow. Remember the good times you had with him.

Vaya con Dios Juan Ramon...
April 26, 2007
Our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.

DEAREST BROTHER,
MAY YOU REST IN PEACE SWEET BEAUTIFUL PRECIOUS ANGEL
April 26, 2007
I am very sorry for your loss. I have experienced losses both anticipated and unexpected. When I was fifteen years old in my first year in high school, my mother died of melanoma at age 54 in December 2004; we were anticipating the loss. As with me, I am sure your loss is emotionally stressful for you and your family.

Your grief may ebb and flow. It has been said that each of us has this well deep inside of us that can be filled to the brim with grief. Every time we cry, we empty out some of the well. But the well fills again. The level of sorrow in your well may lessen as time passes, but it will never run dry. There will always be birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, and those days when the well seems to fill to its brim again. Allow yourself time to remember and mourn. It is part of your healing. Grief is a continuing journey.

Juan Ramon Ortiz plays the timbal in a band
On the weekends with his father he’d stand
Something he loved, something he wanted to do forever
No matter what it was he had to do his joy would not sever
He played basketball with heart and soul
When he was on the court he knew how to roll
October held a special day
I do was something he did say
She helped him love life more
He had something in store
He is quiet and decided to life
Of course very dedicated to his wife
Juan was a son, a husband and a friend who viewed life as grand
Remember him with each song played by the family band

Para los familiares de Juan solo espero que con el tiempo tengan un poquito de resignacion porque el dolor estara siempre pero tengan la seguridad que el esta ahorita en un lugar muy bonito y que solamente el se nos adelanto y la esperanza es de que algun dia tambien llegaremos a ese lugar solo recuerdenlo como era y ustedes y el estaran en mis orasiones siempre que dios los vendiga.
April 25, 2007
We are heart struck over the senseless actions of one individual. Our thoughts are with you. After the tears stop flowing and the pain softens try to remember the time you shared with your loved one and the memories you made, Memories are eternal and forever and know one can take that away from you.
April 25, 2007
When we lost our 21-year-old daughter, also a college student, in a tragic car crash six years ago we never would have thought anyone would understand the pain we have been feeling. But to Juan's family, know that there are thousands who know what you are feeling and we know that while the pain will never ever go away, it will gradually ease and you will one day be able to smile again when you think of the times you cherished with Juan. This is a time when you are feeling tremendous support from people all over the world. Soon you will be alone with your grief and you will need to support each other as never before. Seek counseling; seek out others like you as I am with this message. You will find comfort and strength, and Juan will remain forever. I wish you all the best in this difficult journey.
April 24, 2007
Cuando muere un Boriqua, todos los sentimos. Como se puede explicar una tragedia de tan alta magnitud? Que sepan todos los que conocieron

Dios los bendiga a todos.
April 24, 2007
May you find comfort in knowing how many thousands of people are lifting you and your family up in prayer during this time. Please know the prayers don't stop after this week but they continue tomorrow and all the tomorrows yet to be. Grieving is such a long process so find peace in knowing how many people care about you. We didn't know Juan on a personal level but over the past days we have read about him and all that he was and all that he shared throughout this life. Be proud of all that he did accomplish even though his time was short. Hold tight to the precious memories of such a wonderful young man. God bless each of you.
April 24, 2007
It is so shocking what happened on that sorrowful day
In my prayers you will forever stay
Although we never met and I did not know you
This is a poem for you to say my adieu
It is a shame you can not be with us today
Due to everything that happened I am still in dismay
Now you are up in a better place
We will never forget your honor and grace
Please look over us, protect us from dangers
You are missed by your family and countless strangers
I wanted to let you know you are in the thoughts of many
Condolences and commiserations are aplenty
I bless your family hope they stay strong
In my thoughts they will always belong
I say to you and the other decease
I wish that you all rest in peace
April 24, 2007
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
April 23, 2007

How beautiful to be known for "finding joy in everything he did." I did not know Juan but I mourn the great loss suffered by his family, friends and the VT community.

Here, at this time of saddness we say, " may he rest in peace and may his loved ones know no sorrow." that is what I wish for his loved ones.
The world is a sadder place without him.
April 23, 2007
Juan's Family:
Although I did not know Juan. I wanted to express my condolences. I know what it's like to loose someone you love so dear. You feel like life will never be the same. Just know that "God" is always with you. God bless.
April 23, 2007
It's so terrible that something like this can still happen in the year 2007...
You will forever be in the world their prayers, their thoughts, their heart!
April 23, 2007
I did not know you or your family. But I don’t believe there is a person in the world whose heart has not been touched by this tragedy. There is nothing in this life that brings us more sorrow than to lose loved ones in death. Even harder to bear is when the lives of loved ones are lost due to an unexpected tragedy. The shock can be overwhelming.
Be assured that God promises that he…”is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalms 34:18) Nothing can bring us more peace of mind than the inspired words of… the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulations. (2 Corinthians 1:3,4) Take comfort and solace in the Bible's message as we all await the time when GOD…” will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” (Revelation 21:3,4)
April 23, 2007
I trust that God be your strength and comforter in your time of sorrow. Be encouraged and be blessed.
April 23, 2007
You are in our thoughts and prayers.
April 23, 2007
Juan Ramón y familia, no te conocí sin embargo ver tus fotos y reflejarme en tus ojos y tu sonrisa me hacen pensar que perdimos a un gran ser humano y gran trabajador por nuestra patria.

April 23, 2007
My thoughts go out to the family of Juan. I pray for strength in reaching out to the Lord. Keep your faith as He will bring you through this painful situation. God Bless You Always!

April 22, 2007
Si bien es cierto que todos tenemos un dia para partir asi tambien nos consta que tener que despedirnos es casi imposible. Con los dias llegara ese consuelo, hoy el orgullo de haber tenido con ustedes un ser tan extraordinario, un buen ser humano es el que va a hacer que sobre pasen esta injusta experiencia. Mi familia lamenta por lo que todos estan pasando y le ruega a Dios que todos veamos mas alla de lo sucedido que veamos la solucion.
April 21, 2007
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.

April 21, 2007
Solo la palabra de Dios puede dar consuelo en momentos como estos. Solo la palabra de Dios puede explicar lo que no tiene explicacion. Al escuchar de la perdida de Juan, nuestros corazones se llenaron de dolor y queremos expresar nuestro mas sincero pésame. No entendemos por que esto le pasó a Juan, pero Eclesiastes9:12 dice,"...nunca se puede predecir cuando tiempos dificiles vendran" Eclesiastes9:2-3, "Todo acontece de la misma manera a todos, un mismo suceso ocurre al justo y al impio..." Hebreos13 dice,"No te desampararé ni te dejaré; El Señor es mi ayudador, no temeré lo que me pueda hacer el hombre"
Juan11:11 dice "Su hijo se a dormido" Recuerden las palabras del Señor, yo soy la resurrecion y la vida, el que crea en mi, aunque estuviera muerto vivirá."Juan11:23-24
Gloria a Dios, su hijo Juan vivirá. En el dia de la resurrecion, 1Corintios15:51-55 dice:"...los muertos resuscitaran con sus cuerpos transformados...donde está oh muerte tu victoria?"
El dolor ahora es muy fuerte y nada que yo escriba dará consuelo. Confien en las promesas del Señor. Dios les ama y ama tanto a Juan que está esperando aquel gran dia para darle vida eterna.
Que Dios les bendiga ricamente. Estaremos orando por ustedes.
April 21, 2007
God bless the Ortiz family at this difficult time.
April 21, 2007
I cant even imagine how hard this must be for all of the family....I can only say that I hope God gives you the will to understand and puts love in your heart. Muchos Cariños desde Puerto Rico
April 21, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Sorrowful tears
well up in my eyes
For those who have fallen
like rain from the skies

Each life was so precious
so many are gone
May they shine now from Heaven
like a new morning dawn

I cannot make sense
of this tragic event
I offer my heart
and my prayers have been sent

Each one had a dream
Each one had a goal
Each one had a family
Each one has a soul

Life must go on
for loved ones so shattered
Reach to their hearts
and show them it mattered

For families so lost
For friends left to cope
I greive for their hearts
I pray for their hope

In memory of those who have fallen and for those left to grieve.
For those left injured in harms way...
I pray for peace and healing of your hearts.
April 21, 2007
I am so sorry, for you for your family and your friends. You did not deserve to die this way, but I have to trust that there is a greater plan that mere humans cannot fathom, but through faith will understand.

How painful this tragedy,but God is able.
April 20, 2007
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

EN MI IGLESIA MOVIMIENTO INTERNACIONAL EMAUS,(PATILLAS, P.R.) LOS PASTORES Y HERMANOS NOS ENCONTRAMOS ORANDO MUCHO POR LAS FAMILIAS DE LOS DE LAS TRAGEDIA Y EN PARTICULAR POR LA SUYA.
DIOS LES BENDIGA,

As children of God we have a glorious future because God in his goodness and generosity wants to share his love and life with us. Saint John said "we are already children of God but what we are to be in the future has not yet been revealed; all we know is that when it is revealed we shall be like him because we shall see him as he really is". There is a gap between this life and the next. A caterpillar could never tell how beautiful it would become as a butterfly with beautiful wings.
How could an acorn recognize itself in the oak tree? So in this Tribute to Juan, as well as praying for him, we can also say thanks to God for that glorious future that Juan is now beginning to enjoy.
Whatever Juan is experiencing now, it is better than here. We will miss him and we will pray for him. We ask God to reward him for his goodness and transfigure him to enjoy his true homeland.
No matter what others do to you, we must never forget our most beautiful calling, our calling as sons and daughters, created by God! .
In the Scripture,Romans 8, “The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united witness that we are children of God. And if we are children we are heirs as well: heirs of God and coheirs with Christ, sharing his sufferings so as to share his glory.” Juan, like all of us, is an heir of God; he will inherit from God. What will he inherit from God? Once again, we read “I think that what we suffer in this life can never be compared to the glory, as yet unrevealed, which is waiting for us.” That is what Juan will inherit, the glory of the resurrection.
Life is a journey, a journey from birth to death. The greatest journey in the Old Testament was the journey from Egypt to the promised land of Canaan which we heard described in our first reading. For us our promised land is not on this earth, our promised land where milk and honey flow is heaven. The journey to the promised land in the Old Testament is a symbol of the journey each of us makes to God as we go through this life. Between our birth and our death we are pilgrims on the road to God. We are but travelers on a journey, pilgrims on a pilgrimage to God.

Because we are but travelers, only pilgrims on our journey through life, knowing that our final destiny is with God, we keep our sight always fixed that God wants only what is good for us, and we keep our eyes fixed on the fact that our destiny is eternal life and not just death.

"Lord, for your faithful people, life is changed, not ended". Juan’s life is changed, not ended. We can still be close to him and he is close to us still, "life is changed not ended". We can be close to Juan by praying for him and he will be close to us by praying for us

God lead him safely home!

I can't imagine the pain the family is going through. I was a good friend of Ramoncito's sister, Rosa Nilda,while we were in high school at Nuestra Sra. de Belén in Puerto Rico. This is a great loss since he was a spectacular young man. Rosa (flaquita) and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you.
Love;
Carie

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

This is a tragedy for all Americans. I know we are thousands of miles away, but we feel your grief and would take it from you if we could. Take one day at a time. It's not true that time will heal. I know that firsthand. But what will carry you is the grace of God and his love that he has for you. And, his strong hand that will gently lead and guide you each day if you trust him. Lean on him for he is strong as we our weak. We're praying for you all that you'll be strengthened and comforted with Gods peace.

HIS JOURNEY'S JUST BEGUN

Don't think of him as gone away-
his journey's just begun,
life holds so many facets-
this earth is only one.

Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.

Think how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.

And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was surely and dearly loved.

In memory of:

Juan Ramon Ortiz

Rest in peace
April 18, 2007

Querida Familia: Estoy con ustedes en este momento tan terrible y en donde los padres especialmente no sabemos ni que pedirle a Dios porque no entendemos porqué nos ha llevado a las luces de nuestros ojos. Sé lo que están pasando, perdí a mi hijito de cinco años hace pocos meses y lo ví morir en mis brazos a causa de un cáncer que me lo consumió. No he tenido vida desde entonces. Pero cuando más difíciles y oscuros se ponen mis días, miro al cielo y siento la presencia de Dios en mi vida. Dios les dará paz, se los digo con mucho cariño y porque mi experiencia ha sido esa. Que Dios les reconforte y que puedan tratar de vivir lo mejor posible en este mundo que se nos está yendo de la manos cada día más.

"The Lord's my Shepherd, I'll shall not want." Psalm 23:1

The Lord’s my Shepherd, I’ll not want.
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; He leadeth me
The quiet waters by.

My soul He doth restore again;
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
Even for His own Name’s sake.

Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ill;
For Thou art with me; and Thy rod
And staff my comfort still.

My table Thou hast furnishèd
In presence of my foes;
My head Thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.

Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me;
And in God’s house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.
April 18, 2007
May God bless his beautiful soul and give his loved ones infinite patience.

Mis pesame a la familia i amigos de Juan. Que descanse en la gloria.
April 18, 2007
To the parents and family:
My husband and I lost our only child, a beautiful young lady, many years ago. It was the worst thing I've ever been through, and I didn't know how life could go on for us, but gradually, the pain has diminished. We're talking about a seven to ten year window, here, so you will have to work through it. The word 'Waves' comes to mind. Over time, they will be smaller and further apart. Don't let anyone try to rush you through your grieving, but DO try to get busy with something to take your mind off of it. Nothing will fill the void of a lost child, but they would want you to move on and enjoy life. The love between a parent and child can last forever, and someday I believe you will see your baby, again. My heart goes out to you and I share a little of your pain, because I know how it feels. No one should have to bury their child, but we have to trust God, who gave them to us.

A Beautiful soul.

I hope in my heart that you can still feel your son around you, He will always be there with you, He has no more limitations now, my eight year old son died in a car accident last month and I can somewhat understand what you must be going through, reading that your son enjoyed everything he did makes me think about mine, the same way, always happy and loving everyone, why something this hard could happen to us, there may not be any explanation yet, it feels so unfair but remember, we are not in control. Children with such a great future. Please pay attention to your heart, and all the lessons he left for you, there was a very special purpose for his life and He completed it. He is and always will be there with you, love has no end, we are eternal.

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.
