Hi all, I just read an email from our friend Daniel Velazco, and he informed me his son passed away Thanksgiving evening.
The funeral is going to be sometime this coming week, and as you can imagine, it will be tough for him and his family.
I ask that those of you who are friends with Dan, to please send up some prayers for peace and strength for Dan and his family.
Thank you all for being the wonderful and supportive group you are!

Hello everyone, well I am back. We are still dealing with our loss and have been
trying to get thru the Holidays. We sat
down and talked with our daughter and she said she wants us to put up a tree
for Christmas as she feels her brother
would want us to. So we will put up a Christmas Tree for her and her brother.
gain thanks for all the kind words and prayers, they are greatly appreciated.

You are in our prayers, Dan,an you family, and thankyou for letting us know how you are doing. We were all worried about you. Sincerely; Claudia

Dan is aware that I have asked you all to pray for he and his family… he is very much appreciative of all your prayers and well wishes. I am sure that when he is able, he will personaly send his thanks to each of you. In his last email, he assured me that I did not overstep the bounds of our friendship by letting you know of their loss.
As many of you know, Dan has been a solid friend when we needed him. I am so very thankfull that you have shown that the friendship is a two way street.

May God Bless You All!!!!

I feel terrible, John, I had just gotten to know Daniel about 4 months ago; and he is just a great person. Please send him and his family my sympathies; this is hard for anyone to deal with, I pray he will find the strength.

Hey John I wrote a little verse for Dan and his Family.

Smile everyone t'is a beautiful day,
Make friends as you go along the way,
For we know not when God is ready for us,
Today we're here,tomorrow we're dust.
Live each day as it were your last,
Forget whate'er happened in the past,
Love your brother and your friend,
For we know not when it may end.

I can't imagine the heartache at this time, especially your own child. My thoughts and prayers are with Daniel and his family. We lost my brother and niece the day after Christmas 5 years ago. I will be here for him at anytime he needs me. Thanks John for sharing…Debe

Thanks again, John for posting this news. I will be sure and do as you requested and also will be in touch with him.

oh...that is awful. It is so hard to loose anyone, but a child is always hardest. That is what pushed my mom into some of her darkest times when my brother was taken.
I will share this with our local prayer list. Thanks John for sharing.
