Heartbreak through life's pain
With thoughts of love provided
There's much in life we gain
The light of love forever
For she is with us always
Which time will not erase
The days of love and glory
The smiles that gave us peace
Sweet sentiments increase
So look beyond the rainbow
To colors worn with pride
For she is always with us
What sadness comes upon us
When life is cut too short
Of hatred's greatest cost
Pain in life that takes you
To places worn with grief
Yet there are the moments
That give life our beliefs
She captures all the treasures
Eyes that sparkled bright
Each thought of life so special
She brings a gentle light
Perhaps will ease the pain
But love is constant always
Like silken dew that clings
It's Kissy's love we bring.

"Words of Love"
Luz Maria Gomez "Kissy",
family, friends, and all who knew her.
Sometimes in life you find that special friend.
Someone who changes your life just by being a
part of it. Someone who makes you laugh
until you cant stop. Someone who has your back,
never let's you down, and refuses to let you
give up. Someone that makes you believe
that there really is good in the world.
"Kissy, you may be gone but you will never be
forgotten, you are all of those and more." You are
my BEST FRIEND and I will love and miss you
Read at Kissy's service by Jordann Henderson
To my friend Kissy
Love always forever & a day, Jordann
Friends may think we have
forgotten when at times they
see us smile.
Little do they know the heartaches
that our smiles hide, all the while
beautiful memories are wonderful
things that last 'til the longest day,
they never get lost and can never
be given away.
To some you may be forgotten,
to others a part of the past, but
to those loved and lost you
your memory will always last.

"From the Heart"
There's so much I want to say but as I put the pen to
all I can do is think of all he time's I seen "Kissy's"
sparkling eyes and heard her giggle, and laugh.
She should be here, her life had not even began, its just not fair.
We will never see her graduate, marry, have
children, or see all
what she would have become, but one day she will meet
at Heaven's Gate. I'm sad, I'm mad, I'm
heartbroken that a girl
with so much life, so much to give could be
taken from us.
The only comfort is knowing that "Kissy" is up in
with her mom right at her side. There are so
times she helped Jordann, keeping her going, and
to let her get down. I could never thank her enough.
She helped any and every one that needed her.
Kissy you are now an Angel up in Heaven
with wings made of gold. All who ever
met her, loved her...Many envied her, she was so
of life! In all the years and years of knowing her,
I had never seen her sad, worried and mad at
but never one day of sadness! Luz Maria Gomez A.K.A.
Kissy will never be forgotten, she will live forever
in our hearts.
I loved her just like she was my own daughter,
I will cherish having her being a part of our lives.
We now will all pull together and do all that we can
to bring justice to all who ended her life.
I love you Kissy-
~ Life's Shattered Dreams ~
There are times in life when we look around us and see
the incredible waste of beauty and youth through violence.
Mialinda wrote to me and told me of "Kissy's death. She asked
if I could place a memorial page for her and I was sad that I
had yet another name to be added to my site entitled
~ Life's Shattered Dreams ~
For all those we have lost through violence our heart goes
out to everyone. In this particular case for a girl who had been
through so much pain and suffering by losing her mother and
doing all in her power to become a bright shining star in
future but that was all taken away from her through the
senseless act of someone who she was supposed to feel
protected and loved by. It is all so senseless to me.
For those of you who lost this precious presence in your life
my heart goes out to you all. I know how difficult it is to
lose those that we love and to lose them in such a violent
way has to be even more difficult. There is no explanation for
the questions that are going on in your hearts and mind. We
surely can't say it was God's plan to have this happen. We
know of "free will" and in that moment when Kissy died our
hearts just died a little with her.
When I first picked this graphic for Kissy I did not realize that
"red" was her favorite color, as I was reading some of the
material on this very day I find that it was. It sort of made me
happy that I picked this color especially for Kissy. In some
strange way I feel that Kissy guided me to this particular color.
I wish all those that loved Kissy to remember her beauty
and love and to keep her alive in your hearts so that her
spirit can live on in all the days that you walk on this earth.
We must pray that this violence will end one day,
when people realize how precious all life is and respect
each other's right to live out a full life in the footsteps that
they chose to follow on this earth.
God Bless you "Kissy" and may all who love you keep
your light forever burning in their hearts.
