My daughter's circle of friends lost one of their own last Thursday night. Joaquin Becerel. He jumped out of his family's car depressed and probably on drugs and ran out onto the freeway and got hit and killed. He was Seventeen years old.

On Sunday I had my daughter and 3 of her cousins and a friend who all knew him were over for a somber dinner. My brother-in-law (compadre) and his wife helped them decorate donation boxes for the family of their friend. I could see my daughter was down but she didn't want to talk to me or anyone else. A friend of her's came over a boy she likes and they talked for a long time. She later told me how good it was to open up to him and how she felt he was the only one who wouldn't judge her. I understood and told her how neat it was she could trust him enough to open up like that.

Please pray for Joaquin's safe entrance and loving embrace upon his arrival to the mansion worlds and for his family and friends.

May God help Joaquin's family and friends manage through this difficult time. Amen

ThankYou all for your prayers and dynamic Faith.

Dear Joer,

How terribly sad this is. My condolences to you, your daughter and the poor boy's family. How difficult this must be for them...I cannot even imagine!

God speed his entrance into his happy, eternal life.

Thank You Sarah, MaryJo, jak and all! Your prayers are welcomed and well received.

His funeral will be Saturday at 4:00pm. A rosary tomorrow. My daughters will go. I'll miss because I'll be taking care of my step mom out of town. But my prayers and thoughts will be with them.

My cousin was 19 when he was hit and killed by a car. I was 18. I remember how devastated my aunt and uncle were. I will pray with that thought in mind when I pray for his family.

God Bless You all. Thanks for letting share my personal concerns with you.
