R.I.P Daniel David Rivera 10-22-87 TO 11-16-08

About my son Daniel he is my first born child born Oct.22 1987 he was a joy in my life he brought joy to everyone he new he loved his family and his dogs Rawk and Nala. He loved playing football that was his dream he was mvp player all threw high school he lived football his senor yr he had 89 tackles he got a football scholorship he was called a football star. He was the life of the party he had many friends who loved him and that he loved he loved working with kids for the YMCA he loved to help others and Daniel seemed to take everyone he met under his wing, he was my best friend i grew up with Daniel i was 20 when i had him if it wasn't for him i couldn't of learned to be a good mother, his biological father left when he was 2yrs old to be with younger women it really hurt Daniel alot because he loved his father so much and Daniel came last in his life when Daniel was 4 his father and i thought we would give it another chance that is when i got pregnant with Micheal when i went to go tell him the news that i was pregnant i caught him cheating with someone else and he told me that the baby wasn't his i didn't beg or anything i left and then i had Micheal by myself and Michael was born the same day as Daniels birthday they are 5 yrs apart to the day Daniel was so proud to have a baby brother for his birthday he was so proud of his new brother so Daniel thought that he would be his dad too a few months later i met my husband Michael was a couple of months old, Daniel didn't like it at first he didn't want to me to have any body else in my life he always thought he had to take care of me and his brother he learned to love my husband he took care of us so no matter what in Daniel life that was his dad and they were the best of friends. Then when their father learned i found someone else he wanted to come back into lour lives yes he was my first love i was 13 and he was 16 when we me so yes he was my first love Daniel found him when he was 18 to find out Y he left and what the best thing he ever left me and the kids it was to late i gotten married to a man that loved me and my boys and treated them like his own and his family too. So when Daniel passed he wanted me to take him back to CA from we are from it was to late i told him hell no he is my son he belongs with me out were we live is his home all his friends are out here and Micheal said no if he has a problem with it he can take it up with me Micheal is so upset with him he always says the hell with him he left us he has 2 other boys from some one else he got some one else pregnant just to get back at me oh well his fault i didn't even invite him for Daniel's funeral Y he wasn't there for him then Y now i raised my boys the best way i could i think i did a damb good job they are the most kind hearted kids now men that i raised i taught them to respect women and it they ever got any girl pregnant they will take resposabilities no matter what they won't walk out of their childs life. Daniel was killed in a car accident on Nov 16th 2008 Due to texting and driving so if you have teen agers or adults please tell them to stop texting does kill if i can save some one else i will just tell Daniel's story iam sure he would want me to spread the word.

Hello miss Lisa!! I apologize it's been SO long since I've been on here but I got to thinking about everyone on here especially those I use to speak to often! I hope to hear from you one of these days. Just wanted you to know I was thinking of you even now!

Hi Lisa, thanks for your comment. Your profile pic and story remind me so much of me and my son! I also had him at a young age - I was 18 and just out of high school. His father didn't stick around and I had to grow up fast and become a responsible parent. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I had not had him. I sacrificed so much for him, and he turned out to be a great kid who sounds a lot like your Daniel. I feel so cheated now that he is gone! I have some ok days and some not so ok days, but the 1 year mark is almost here so I am not holding up as well lately. Thanks for reaching out!

Lisa,

Your Daniel is such a handsome young man!!

I read your post on the main page and you're not crazy.  You are mourning the loss of the most important person in your life.  Losing a child is something you will never get over. 

It's been one year and four months since we lost our daughter and it's much harder now.  I hear it gets better as time goes on, in my case it's not gotten better, it's gotten worse.

It really does make a difference to me to come on this site and talk to people that really do know how I feel.  I read yesterday about a mother whose son was murdered 25 years ago and she said she is not happy, but content.  I have to agree with that.

You're very important to other people and sadly the message of losing your son to texting has helped others I'm sure.

Hang in there today and know you are being though of.

Hugs,

Terri

Lisa,

Thank you for leaving the comment and putting your story out there to share.  My son Manuel was so much like your son--he was a great athlete, everyone like to be around him because he was so much fun.  He had so much to give in this world, and was such a good friend to so many people. 

I think I am just in the middle of reality setting in. The first few months I was in shock and still getting things done, but now I am just so tired.  I don't even want to go for a walk.  But I know I have to figure out a way through this to help my daughters, who are 15 and 10.  Sometimes I really wish I had the luxury of a mini-breakdown!

I hope you are feeling better as time goes on.  My girls and I are trying to focus on how we can move forward, because I know Manuel would want us to live as vibrantly as he did.  I just know it is going to take time, and it's hard to be in the middle of this.

Thanks again for your kind words.

Laura

Morning Lisa

I just read you main post and am so glad that your co workers gave you so much love and compassion when you returned to work.  This makes all the difference in the world when you are trying to heal and move forward.  I am blessed with many friends and family and I don't know what I would have done without all their love and support the lat 13 months.   It is all we ask for in this grief journey.  And then some days we aren't as strong as we would like to be or the saddness creeps up and hits us but we are just appreciative that people can just hug us, no words need to be spoken at that moment, just warm compassion.

So glad they have all been there for you.

Your son was such a special guy and so very handsome.  We need more of these fine young men to stay with us on our earth.!!!

Hugs to you today

I too am so relieved your husband called out to you with the help of Daniel.  It was not your husbands time....he is needed here to be with you and your other son to heal from your tragedy.

I am also glad you are reaching out for some kind of counseling for all of you.  When something like this happens every family is different in how they need to deal with it.  Sounds like your husband pulled inward.  But now he knows he has to express what he is feeling.  That is good.

My husband tried to drink away his pain for 9 mos. after our loss.  Then he had a heart scare and was hospitalized.  It was only then that he had to stop the drinking and feel the pain in order to heal.  

Our family, along with all the others will NEVER be the same as our family has been shattered just like glass, but there is life left for the family members here so we have to learn to try and heal, and go on for our family, other children and grand children.  It is a hard road for sure.

My thoughts are with you and your family.....I pray you find a good counseling group and your husband.  Positive thoughts coming your way

Dear Lisa, please know that so many of us are thinking of you and thankful that you found your husband in time.  I don't know why your family treats your husband poorly, but if it were me, I wouldn't give them the opportunity to say these hurtful things to him.  Just because they're your family doesn't mean that you have to see them frequently.  As if you and your husband aren't in enough pain, they give you & him more?  Tell your husband about how we all care about you & him, and wishing you love & prayers.   Everyone here has suffered the worst thing that can happen to anyone, and we're all just getting by one day at a time, sometimes one minute at a time.  Hugs, Janet
