I lost my son and my life tragically January 03, 2010...

I lost my son Tragically on January 03, 2010...His name is Eloy Conrad Duran III he is 25 years old and has a five year old daughter...Living his life with his daughter was his passion in life...he loved her soo much it consumed his and her life...being a happy, considerate, loving, caring, compassionate person, he was always happy and at peace...giving of himself to anybody who needed help, making friends was a trait he had like no other...enjoying every second of everyday of his life...He was a true Gentleman amongst Gentlemen...

Our overwhelming pain...our sorrow...our anger...our consciousness...our life...has been changed forever, the adage dead man walking has never tuned in so true for me, because they killed me that early morning as well... We know you are in heaven with god son, a much better place than here on earth...I love you son...You may now Rest in Peace with the Lord our God...til we meet again
My son was murdered by a group of cowards who jumped my son and murdered him...This is the most cowardess senseless, premeditated, horrific, heinous, crime a human being could evoke on another living breathing god fearing human being...The rage in their mortal souls most certainly run rampant...without conviction...this can only lead them into the hellish confines of a very very dark place...without pity. I pray for them because they must know not what god has in store for them...Vengeance Is Mine Sayeth The Lord...
I wrote a poem, not very good but non-the-less...my personal feelings of utter loss and tragedy that may strike a cord of sanity for somebody...So...here it is

For all of the Love, Happiness and Joys in Life, they only seem "Mild", because there is nothing like the love for your "Child".
My son Conrad was taken away by the hands of "Fools", Would it not be fair if they succomed to the very same "Tools".
God said vengance is mine, and thou shalt not "Kill"...we all know your life was priceless...my son, they made you, the "Bill".
I believe in God the Almighty, and know Conrad is with our "Lord"...I pray his killers, god will let the devil "Horde". Though my thoughts and feelings are so "Raw"...god and man...just know, it is the "Law"...
How could you take a man's life with no "disregard", and continue on with your life..trying to act so "hard"...I do pray for all involved...even those who hold the missing "card"...you saw this horrific "crime", and you wont give us any "time", just know, the LORD and the LAW...You Are Just As Guilty, if you do not come forward...of this "HORRIFIC CRIME"...
These people are guilty of the most heinous, horrific, crime Imaginable...what if it was your loved one, be it your son, your daughter, your mom, your dad, your brother, your sister, or even you...tortured...murdered...
If You Are A Witness Of This Tragedy...You Must Come Forward With What You Know...

I have just read your post and poem and I truly have no words. I do know the pain because of my daughter dying tragically, (from a fire in our home that I could not get her out). The saddest thing for you I see is you have to continue living this day over and over until our great justice system does their so called job. I'm trying to sit here and think of something to say to you but like I said there are no words for that kind of tragedy that was forced upon you.  I will keep you and your family in my heart and thoughts.  Linda, Jennifer's mom

I am so sorry for your loss, And for someone to do this to another human being is so beyond me! I have read your posts and I feel your pain and anger, My son passed away in a motorcycle accident, it is so different then having someone else take ones life... I hope that you can find justice for you Son and I pray that you can find a bit of peace in your life. I hold you dearly in my heart.

Kevin Cocozella and Eddie Mchugh- They are deeply troubled youth- they are not capable of remorse either by DNA or by thier horrible upbringing.

Conrad was a good friend of mine and words cant describe the hurt and pain and knowing what the family is going through! Whenever I pass through the spot where the incident happened I cant help but get teary eyed and say a prayer for him. It just sucks that the other guys involved are living their lives without any punishment!!! I hope they get caught and get what they deserve! There was no reason NO REASON whatsoever why they had to take his life, Why vouldnt they stand up to my friend like a man and not have to use weapons? Its childish and very selfish. His beautiful daughter doesnt have her da da anymore and its very sad knowing that! He loved his daughter dearly. I couldnt imagine lossing a child and having a child lose their parent.... these lil punks took a friend, a family member, a gentle giant, the list goes on and on he knew sooooo many people.... I went to his gravesite Sunday th 21st and it killed me knowing hes all alone and cold. We miss and love you Conrad you will never be forgotten!! I have faith in the others getting caught.. but dont take anyone for granted because you never know when they will depart from us... I wish I coulda told him a last goodbye...

Hello, I unfortunately do understand. My son James was murdered by a hit and run driver on 22 Sept 2003. There is no words for the pain. Think about it, if you lose your spouse you are a widow/widower; if you lose your parents you are a orphan; but there is no word for the loss of a child because the pain is so great. My sons killer was found but with hit and run murders they only get a slap on the wrist. My family fell apart after James death. I am on yahoo im, user name is sdaztecangel

I know your pain. My 14 year old son, Devin Pacheco, was shot on May 23, 2009 and later died on May 25, 2009 (Memorial Day). There have been no arrest and the police have not returned my phone calls or made any attempt to investigate my sons death since Septemebr 18th 2009.

My pain is so great. Since that day it feels as if me and my family are fuctioning in a cloud. Nothing seems to be real anymore. We wake up everyday and try to have some type of normal routine but when those people took Devin from us he too OUR world away.

Since the week after I buried my son I began attending counseling and support groups. I have relied on God and my family and we are determined to stay strong for my son Devin. He was the happiest, most loving and caring child you ever would have met.

Please feel free to contact me anytime

My deepest sympathies are with you. I too lost my son who was murdered last year in June09. He was 21. He was such a calm soul.
I can so very much understand what you are and will go thru.
Believe me I am still going thru it every single day.
My prayers are with you.
Let your faith guide you.
Write any time. I work nights so I will respond in the late hours when you can not sleep. I here!
