My deepest condolences to the Vasquez family. David was a very special friend and I will truly miss him. Even though we lost touch over the years, David was always in my thoughts and prayers. I pray that God be with his children as they mourn the passing of their father. Claudia - I pray that the Lord help ease the pain in your heart. David will be watching over from above. Psalm 73:26 "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever".

Like a light to always know where you are that leads me to you and always led me your way. I member what you said no matter how we took different paths. In your thoughts I was with you and no matter when you were down. At the end of our calls you said *thank you* and promise to bring you with me again. I told you I never left you either.

I got it again and all the others too :) ..I am still learning on how to pick them up but eventually do. Example a doctor was giving a speech and talked about his credentials. Attended UNLV and so on. Then I *smile*. Hi and see you with a huge smile asking me to repeat myself so you can laugh. So anyhow she told me to open my mind and I will be able too. I was happy when you came foward smiling. I promise to keep the half you sent. I never will take it off it is around my neck. I wonder if you put yours where you said it would be forever. I have a feeling it is :) ... Okay *members* and *ay ay a la brave*. I miss you like I always did but was happy for the warm sun too. Thanks for the shirt it's big on me but like I said I wont wash it. I feel wrapped so close. I love you too always. Promise...Still close to you.

Since the first time we met I knew we would be together... And everyday since we were together. I miss you deeply Babe, the kids do too! There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you and I. You were so loving and always made me laugh! The Holidays were the funnest for us. You, my dad and Patron! Sigh... Listening to your favorite music that was not just Journey or Rush but the kind that hit our hearts and made us dance all night! (R.A.) I talk about you everyday so Ryan will remember you always! He looks just like you Babe. I know you watch us from Heaven and are with us in Spirit. Like before and through out and even now you are forever in my dreams... On God's time we will be together again. Thinking of how you used to whisper in my ear and say "I Love You to the Moon and Back..." Hmmm... I Love You too Babe and I still have your wonderful voicemails!
See you in my dreams...

I got it and heard them loud and clear. I was about to turn on the vacuum and heard him singing. As I was being tugged to look at the screen. If the red bright lights didn't catch me what else. Right...but I just about past out and said well *hello* to you too. Oh and by the way the room I was in was affected but I was laughing and thinking *gotcha*. Thanks! I miss you and love you always. Merry Xmas it is days away. If I was there I would buy you every white rose and pink ones in El Paso with one special secret flower. I am in the water and it the

In a couple of days is Thanksgiving. I give thanks for knowing you and making my world a happier place. Guess what? Tuesday while napping during the day you came in my dream. It seem so real David. But I got startled and not cempletly woke up and was able to return where we left off. The only thing I remember is you getting on a small type plane with a bunch of people. But I was not able to go on the plane because there were so many people. I was sadden and crying calling your name and you yelled at me to stop crying and threw me like a key attached to something orange like a plastic pix. I caught it and said OK and that I was gonna go on the next plane. As I finally woke up I played the dream in my head over and over again wondering what it meant. So I figured since you have left you came to me in my dreams to let me know you are with me. Your presence in my dream are warm and so vivid like you never left. I hope to see you someday again. I will keep dreaming and hope you will continue to be in my dreams as much as you want to be in them. I miss you and know that I really never was brave enough to tell you I always loved you. And I love you in my heart and soul.......:)
