He became an angel September 24, 2010. He had just turned 24 August 8. He was on his way to work on his motorcycle. He had just bought it 2 months prior and was so proud of it and so very cautious. The accident involved a big rig. That is all we know. We decided that it was better not to know what exactly happened because it would cause us more pain and not bring him back. They said he did not suffer and for that we are thankful. He and his girlfriend live with my husband and I and they were saving to get their own place. He was a good young man and was not into any trouble. He went to work and came home and hung out with his friends…that is all. I can’t understand why this had to happen to HIM????? I know that he is in a better place than all of us and he isn’t hurting like we are. Untill we meet again, my angel

Dear Anita,

I realize we live near each other & I share your grief. I have lost 2 of my 3 daughters in the past 18 months, both with cancer. But it doesn't really matter now how our children died, we are still grieving & we are indeed a sad group. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to know & love my daughters which is as I'm sure you too feel about Davey. What if we had missed that wonderful life with them. That would be sadder still. I am so sorry for us.

Love, Shirley

I am so sorry for your loss.  What a nice looking young man.

You've been dealing with your loss just a few months longer than me.  I understand when you write, "Why HIM??".  I guess all of us must feel the same way. 

My daughter was 21.  She lived with my niece in an apartment about 45 minutes from home.  We had gotten her a washer and dryer for Christmas and I was supposed to go sit with her and wait for it to be delivered.  She died five days before we got to do that. 

I will say, I think I prefer the shock that came the first few weeks over this despair I'm feeling now.  It is just horrible.

How are you doing?  How are the other members of your family?

My husband is doing fine, he works a lot of hours so he stays busy.  I have three boys.  17, 10 and nine and they all seem to be doing okay too.  Life goes on I guess.  (for them anyway)  Which I am happy about that.  I really don't know how well I could handle seeing them grieving like myself.

Anyway, I hope you're doing well.  I appreciate your friend request, just sorry that this is how we had to get to meet.

Dear Anita, I am so very sorry for your loss of David. He was 4 years younger than my oldest son Stephen was at the time of his passing. Stephen was 28, he had colon cancer and fought the battle for 1 year and 7 months. He passed away on February 24, 2009. The cancer was in his genes from his fathers' side, now my youngest son James has the same gene, he already went through genetics testing, he is 20 years old. I have two other sons that haven't been tested yet, and I pray they don't have it. James is being his own great health advocate and I'm very proud of him. This just isn't fair... My 23 year old Anthony hasn't even been to the doctor yet, he's not listening to us. My 27 year old Christopher has been to the doctor and has had a colonoscopy but hasn't had the genetic test. This is a living nightmare, I'm sorry for venting like this but most of the time I feel helpless against this cancer...    David is an angel just like my son Stephen may they rest in the Lords' Paradise and may the perpetual light shine upon them forever...        Sincerely, Janet Juarez
