Psalm 23
A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

My sincere condolences to all of Juan's family on your recent loss. May God be with you during this very difficult time to strengthen you as he promises to do at Isaiah 41:10, 13. May you also find comfort in the promise he has given us at Revelation 21:4. This will be accomplished by the greatest act of love ever shown to mankind. (John 3:16)

First I want to give my condolences to Martha, Kim, Gabby, Christina, Pricilla and all the other members of Juan's extensive family. This tragedy has struck us all by surprise. I am ever so grateful to have met you in the short time Juan and I were together. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you.

Juan or "Shorty" was a wonderful man I met along my journey while trying to discover myself. I fell head over heals for his goofy personality, his strength of life, and his determination to change. He taught me so much coming from a "beach bunny" that has been sheltered her whole life. When I met Juan I had this urge to want to help him and fix him, allow him to live life comfortably without looking over his shoulder at all times. I wanted so much for him.

I heard him say time and time again that this day would come, however I thought it was just a fantasy that he lived since I have never been exposed to this torment of the "gang life". I feel like I neglected some serious issues and like some of you, feel responsible for not being able to have saved this situation from happening.

Shorty, I hope you that you are free from the bondage of self, in fact I know you are floating on clouds and happy as a clam. I wish I could hear your voice, feel your embrace, and watch you dance one last time. I wish I could have one more moment to be with you, and teach you how to surf since that was your first "favor" you asked of me. I wish I was there at the gates when you were released. However all these wishes are merely impossible. I know we will meet again. You are my "favorite Mexican" (is what I use to say to you everyday). You are always going to be in my heart, on my mind, and remembered forever. I'll always love you.

Your friend,

Shelley Smith
