Louis, you were taken from us so suddenly that most of us still cannot get over you being gone. I am not sure that any of us will ever get over the shock of knowing that we will never be able to see or touch you again. There isn't a day that goes by that we do not think of you. We dream of you every day. You protected and served right to the very end, where the only person who could protect you was Jesus. We know in our hearts that you are taken care of and at peace, we are just not sure if we ever will be. You touched may people is so may different ways, ways that you may have never know while here on this earth. Please over see us while we are still here and as we pray and speak to you. We love you so very much and miss you even more. We will see you when we are reunited again in Heaven. WE LOVE YOU LOUIS.

Christmas stays very special because it was your favorite time of year, now brings favorite memories of you that we hold so dear. In our hearts forever. Love Your Grandson David

You gave me the best years of my life. I love you and miss you so much. And although gone from me by the acts of a drunk driver, God does not make mistakes and it was his will to take you. For those blessed with your beautiful smile, your shining eyes, and wonderful disposition, you're forever missed and no one can take your place.

CrossMichael Scott Lawton
By Joan Lawton, Swanton, VT USA
I found this poem in the newspaper when my son was very small. It is entitled: To My Grownup Son, but has much deeper meaning now, as he never had the chance to growup, having been killed by a drunk driver at the age of 18.

My hands were busy through the day,
I didn't have much time to play
The little games you asked me to,
I didn't have much time for you.
I'd wash your clothes,
I'd sew and cook,
But when you brought your picture book,
And ask me please to share your fun,
I's say "A little later,son."
I'd tuck you in all safe at night,
And hear your prayers, turn out the light.
Then tiptoe softly to the door....
I wish I'd stayed a minute more.
For life is short, the years rush past.
A little boy grows up so fast.
No longer is he at your side,
his precious secrets to confide.
The picture books are put away,
There are no longer games to play,
No goodnight kiss, no prayers to hear.
That all belongs to yesteryear.
My hands, once busy, now are still.
The days are long and hard to fill.
I wish i could go back and do
The little things you asked me to.

BORN: April 3, 1927 PASSED AWAY: February 2, 1996


I've worked hard all my life, just to keep you safe and near, with dirt on my hands and clothes and sometimes with tears, With hurt hands, pains and cracks, when the alarm went off I knew I had to go back. You called me sometimes when it wasn't even dark, But not long after that, You'd hear my truck park. I've showed you how to push mountains, roads and hills, I've showed you right from wrong so you wouldn't be killed. I've taught you how to love, I've taught you how to fight, I've taught you all the above, I've tried to teach it right. But now it's time for you to go on my family, It's time for you to be released, So you can go out into this cold, cold world and tell them you're a Leis. Your husband and father.

Matt died in a motorcycle accident and I will love him until I no longer breathe.

---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 loved so much.

They say that in time the heart will heal. Mine hasn't. I miss you so much that it hurts. Not a day goes by that I do not think of you. A part of me is missing and always will be. I have come to accept that. You made me a promise that you would always be here for me. I believe in my heart that you are my guardian angel. There is comfort in that. But, I would give anything to hear your voice and to see your beautiful face one more time. If God would let me say one thing to you, it would be I love you. One day, we will be together again. I know this in my heart.

I never questioned my faith in the lord til this day and I pray I will not lose my will to beleive in such a thing but its hard to be so strong when your feeling such pain that you feel life will never be the same, I think I will never laugh out loud like I once used to now that Donna is gone, I feel my heart is broken from ever feling such happiness. The one thought that keeps my faith in the lord is beleiving one day I will get to see Donna in heaven and without faith in God that one thing thats keeps me sane would not be for me to once see, So my faith I will keep!!!

The reason for death is still pending which is very hard to accept. IM FREE!!!
Don't greive for me now, for now I'm free
Im following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh,to love,to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I've found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh,a kiss,
Ah yes,these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My lifes been good,I savored much;
Good friends, good times,a loved ones touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief;
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now,He set me free.

In Loving memory of Nadine Rivera Lowerre
A beautiful soul taken too soon by a drunk driver.

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Cross Nadine Rivera Lowerre
By Darel Madrid, Espanola, NM
Nadine you were a devoted mother who loved your two children more than anything in the world. It was because of that love that you made painful sacrifices to ensure that she would always be there for them. Sacrifices that no person should ever have to endure. A motherís love is very powerful indeed. Your love of Christ was just as powerful. Your sacrifices assured you a place in Heaven where our Lord and Savior Jesus has prepared a room for you and for all who believe in him. You has been an inspiration to me as I raise my son. You have taught me that there is no greater love than that of a parent for their children.

Sadly, your life was taken too soon at the hands of a drunk driver on June 28, 1998. Born March 18, 1961 to two wonderful, loving, and hard working parents, Nadine you were a beautiful mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend.

I only recently found out of your passing and I am saddened beyond anything I have ever felt.

Nadine, it has been 12 years since I last saw you. I hope to see you in heaven, you have always been an angel to me. I promise to light a candle on your birthday and say a prayer for you and your family every day till the day I die. I have never stopped thinking and caring about you and I never will.

To any members of Nadineís family who read this, I pray that you have forgiven me, especially B & J & FCL & A & M.
