August 27, 1986 - July 4, 2004
He never ever crawled. He just got up and dashed. Danny was extremely energetic and got into everything so he kept us going.
and his zest for life.
He loved the outdoors and lived his short life to the fullest.
It feels like a lifetime ago and yet my heart aches as if it were yesterday.
There is not one second of the day that goes by that I donít think about you.
I miss you so much!
I still canít accept the fact that I will never see you again on this earth.
It is so hard to have to go on with life when yours is now over!
You were so young! You were not supposed to die at seventeen!
WHY? I ask over and over again. Why did this happen to you?
Why did I have to bury my first born son?
Why werenít you given the chance to live until your hair turned gray?
Why arenít you here to protect your sisters as most big brothers do?
Why will you never be able to go fishing with your Dad
and act silly as you both always did?
WHY? WHY? WHY?
No matter how many times I ask, I get no answers.
I hope that when my time to leave this earth arrives,
God reveals to me why I had to bury my son.
For now, I have no choice but to live with all the memories.
They are all precious and I hold them deep inside my broken heart.
My beloved Danny, no matter how many years go by without you here,
I promise that I will always be the mother that loves and adores her son!
As always, I am here if you ever need me!!!!!
I Love You Danny!!!!!
In Loving Memory for my precious son

anything related to romance such as hearts, flowers because he was a very romantic person. His favorite color was blue.
Once, in a little pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads,
there lived a little water beetle in a community of water beetles.
They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond
with few disturbances and interruptions.
Once in a while, sadness would come to the community
when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad
and would never be seen again.
They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.
Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge
to climb up that stem.
However, he was determined that he would not leave forever.
He would come back and tell his friends
what he had found at the top.
When he reached the top and climbed out of the water
onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired,
and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap.
As he slept, his body changed
and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly
with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.
of a whole new world and a far superior way of life
to what he had never known existed.
Then he remembered his beetle friends
and how they were thinking by now he was dead.
He wanted to go back to tell them,
and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before.
His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.
But, his new body would not go down into the water.
He could not get back to tell his friends the good news.
Then he understood that their time would come,
when they, too, would know what he now knew.
So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!
so anything related to nature would be great.
Every night as I lay down to sleep,
I lay my head down
as I begin to weep.
The thought of your strong embrace,
Brings such a sweet memory and smile to my face.
The thought of you not being here,
How painful it is to think of, my dear.
I think of the past
and fall into a trance,
My mind begins to wonder and dance.
As the tears begin to fall,
I get up and look in the mirror in awe.
How could such a young life come to an end?
Now my life has begun to bend.
I walk down the hall and pass your untouched room,
I suddenly become distraught and gloom.
I open the door and you're not inside,
The agonizing pain makes me want to run and hide.
I realize that I can no longer pretend,
My life too will come to an end.

I love you!
He had great compassion for anyone or anything in pain.
he responded to a call from a friend who was in crisis. On his way home he fell asleep and crashed into a tree.
The hardest part of losing my son is the "missing."
I miss his physical presence
and I will miss what he would have looked like
as the years go by.
I miss hearing his voice asking me for motherly advice
or just telling me that he loves me
and he will be right back.
I miss his warm hugs
and the feel of his rough hands as I held him
when he needed to be comforted and loved.
I miss looking into his eyes
and knowing his thoughts and his feelings without any spoken words.
I miss all the wonderful times we shared
and all the challenges a teenager brings that kept me on edge.
I miss creeping into his room as he slept
and just looking at him in amazement
and thanking God for giving me such a precious gift
which two years ago I had to return.
I miss his dry humor and all of the pranks
he pulled on me that made me want to wring his neck.
I miss the everyday events that I took for granted
because I never thought that one day
he would walk out the door to never return.
I miss my precious son Danny and all of the milestones
that should have taken place but I will never get to see them
just because his young life came to an abrupt end.
I miss my life as I once knew it
and now I have to continue living
when part of me has died.
I miss you Danny!
I know that only you and God know just how much!
!Te amo hijo mio!
