Grbearsy, you are forever in my heart. Thank you for 37 memorable years as we lived, loved and laughed together. You were a devoted husband, father, grandfather, and uncle, a faithful friend, wise mentor, encourager, patient listener, inspirational teacher, a visionary and you definitely lived “outside the box”. And you valiantly fought the depression that eventually became terminal. I so look forward to being with you again, someday.
I love you!
God hath not promised
Skies always blue,
All our lives through;
God hath not promised
Sun without rain,
Joy without sorrow,
Peace without Pain.
But God hath promised
Strength for the day,
Rest for the labor,
Light for the way,
Grace for the trials,
Help from above,
~Annie Johnson Flint
In Loving Memory, My Big Brother Joey, April 7, 1975 – April 17, 2009
Much loved little Sister
In honor of all those we have lost.
You will never be forgotten.
Forever in My Heart.
There were 411 completed suicides in San Diego County in 2012. This is more than one per day, happening right in our own backyard. It is estimated that for every person who dies by suicide, there are at least six suicide grievers left to cope with the sudden, traumatic death of their loved one. The “survivors” are often devastated and confused. If each of these people left behind 6 devastated loved ones, then there are 2,466 people that SOSL wants to reach out to from the year 2012 alone.
Your love will be our guide…
This picture captures the essence of all Todd was: Engaging, musical humorous, unique, caring, entertaining. He was loved by all and loved all in return. Bless you, Todd. You have blessed so many!
Beauty, Intelligence, Compassion & Love. This was, and will always be, my Mom.
Scotty, you are loved dearly by all of us. We miss you so much. Knowing you are safely in God’s hands is a comfort, but you still had so many good years of life ahead with your family and friends who love you and treasure you. You are thought of every day, and the memories of life with you are precious.
Love always from your family, dear Scott.
You will never be forgotten.
Jason was a kind, caring, and deeply compassionate husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend. He is dearly missed by all of us who loved him. His memory lives on with each of us.
The light of a distant star continues to reach the earth long after the star itself is gone. In the same way, the light and love of our dear Paul gave will continue to shine in many hearts.
You are the most wonderful son. The most accepting, forgiving, and loving son a Mom could ever have. I miss your smile and your voice. I love and miss you so much.
YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN OUR HEARTS!! WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU, YOUR BEAUTIFUL SMILE OR YOUR AMAZING SPIRIT!!
WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH EVERY SINGLE DAY OF EVERY YEAR THAT GOES BY WITHOUT YOU HERE WITH US.
YOU BLESSED ALL OF OUR LIVES. WE LOVE YOU VERY MUCH, YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS.
When I look at the stars, I know you are the brightest one shining back down on me. You were my “Light” and my “Love” and you will forever be missed. Rest in peace my sweet “Phil Bear”, until we meet again, I love you.
He was a loving and caring man filled with pain. We miss him and love him so much. Our hearts will always be with him.

My Best Friend, only sibling, older brother, my hero. Loving Broseph, son, friend, and dad to his sweet pup Bella. These terms don’t even begin to do justice for the amazing man he was. There are no words that come close to describing the impact he had on the lives of those around him. Forever in my heart and on my mind.
I love you Broaeph. This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you. This world didn’t deserve you.
There aren’t enough words in the English language to even begin to give justice to the impact you had on my life. My big Broseph, my best friend, my hero. I will forever miss you. This world didn’t deserve you.
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you. I hope you finally found the peace that you so deserve.
Dearest Marcus, we miss you and your witty ways, your practical jokes, but, most of all we miss you and your beautiful face. not a day goes by when we aren’t thinking about you and what you have missed in your niece and new nephew. Your friends still come around just to be near where you once were, you were so loved. Miss you son.
Love Mom and Dad
My dad is my most loyal supporter. No matter what he always had my back. He loved my siblings and me unconditionally, even if it wasn’t deserved. He was a strong man with a soft heart. Last Tuesday – October 14th, 2014 he took his life. I will miss him until the end of time but I will carry on his legacy & make him proud for the rest of my days.
Andy was my younger brother, father to three beautiful girls, son to loving parents and loyal friend to many. As a high school football, basketball and tennis coach, Andy’s influence on a great number of kids went far beyond football fields, basketball courts and tennis courts. Andy accepted Christ at an early age and was a respected mentor who led his students as he would his own children. He is sorely missed every day, but his example of intense determination will be with us forever.
I promise to never go anywhere without you. Please remember to take me with you too. Thank you for the signs that you send – they keep me going for one more day. Have fun on the other side. Dance with the stars, tell everyone stories about us. I know one day, I’ll walk through my pain & grief, and I’ll make you proud. I know that love is everlasting. I can’t wait for the day when I can hold you close once more.
Chunky says “MAAA!”
Love you, my little NT!
Dennis was a great man. He never met a stranger and would strike up a conversation with anyone. He is missed beyond words. He was a very spiritual man and now rests in the arms of our Lord. He is living in the peace now that he couldn’t find here on earth. The memories are many and he is remembered with smiles and laughter. I love you and miss you!
My precious daughter, my mini me. Always available to help others, outgoing, beautiful smile, amazing bear hugs, all around fun loving girl!
Valera was a kind and caring person. You will be forever in our hearts. We love you and miss you very much.
Remember to love yourself first.
We love and miss you so much.
Not a day goes by that I don’t think about you and miss you — but I have never been angry at you. You were in so much pain physically and emotionally, and, although I never knew that a person could grieve so long and so painfully as I have since you’ve been gone, I have always been grateful that you were finally at peace. You were my love, my husband, my friend, and a MUCH LOVED father and grandfather — and a good man. You are still sending me pennies from Heaven. You are always with me.
The funniest & best dancer in the world!
I can still hear her singing, “Born to be Wild”! She’d light up any room !!!Gone but never forgotten, she’s got gold dancing wings now! I miss you, Julie
Still can’t find all the pieces to our broken hearts. You are forever loved and so very missed.
You were a good man. Your weary soul is at peace, how I wish there could’ve been peace and happiness here. You are loved and missed. One day we’ll all be together again sweet brother.
I miss hearing your voice, seeing your smile, touching your face and the way you laughed at me. The last words we said to each other will stay with me for life.
I will always love you Kevin Patrick Oconnor ❤️
Forever in our Hearts,
Love you Honey
I met Lana on 7/17/2015. On 7/27/2015, I wrote down my proposal speech. I don’t know that I had ever wanted to be married in my life but, within a week, I knew she was the one. She was excited to be married to me although I never actually got to propose.
On 9/25/2015, Lana killed herself with a .25 caliber handgun as I stood behind her car in my garage pleading with 911 to get here faster. Reportedly, they took her off of the ventilator two days later on 9/27/2015.
You’re in the arms of the angel
May you find some comfort here
Will, you are missed tremendously! Thank you for teaching me so much. Through all of the tears that I shed missing you, I can still laugh when I think of the funny times we had…I wish we could have more!
I imagine you’re in heaven jamming on your guitar or piano singing to the top of your lungs – with your mom singing by your side. We love and miss you every moment of the day. You have taught me compassion and gratitude and for that I am thankful. You are so LOVED Jacob & your legacy will live on in our children. – You will ALWAYS be my buney bear.
“The moment that you left me, my heart was split in two; one side was filled with memories, the other side died with you. I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek. Remembering you is easy, I do it everyday; but missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I hold you tightly within my heart and there you will remain; you see life has gone on without you, but will never be the same”
We love you and miss you, Ken.
Old friends, old friends. sat on their park bench like bookends
A newspaper blowin’ through the grass
Falls on the round toes of the high shoes, of the old friends…
…Time it was and what a time it was it was…
A time of innocence, a time of confidences
Long ago it must be, I have a photograph, preserve your memories
There all that’s left of you.
You changed my life …Thank you for 45 years of memories.
Love you always.
I didn’t know Olivia, she is my friends’ granddaughter. Being a parent of a child that went through those dark days as a teenager, I can understand the pain suicide has on the family and friends. The guilt of not knowing or understanding why such a young life has been taken. Olivia is now free of all the things in life that hurt her. God Bless our Children and keep them safe.
Our beloved Jeff was a very loving & devoted son, husband & father of two little girls. He was an entrepreneur, a musician, an artist, and a veteran. He thoroughly enjoyed photography, surfing, and family. He faithfully served 9 yrs in the US Air Force where he contracted and severely suffered from PTSD, which ultimately caused his life to end in tragedy. We love and miss you, Jeff, beyond words!

She was my best friend, our mommy, grandmama to my babies. The best friend to anyone in need. A giver to a fault. Self sacrificing in every way. The hardest worker I will ever know. The best hider of the worst hurts. A free spirit yet bound by pain. Never asking or taking yet always giving. She was my biggest cheerleader. She loved every stranger. Drawn to those in need. Caretaker to many who were losing their fight. She is my inspiration. She’s the wind beneath my wings. Love you the mostest!❤️
Donna, you are always in our hearts, Jessica, Monica and Mom
You were loved more than you you knew. I miss you everyday. Christine
A shooting star, a handsome charming guy, an athlete, an artist, a philosopher, our love.
MISD (medication-induced suicide/dementia).
My brother was such a talented artist and musician. He was kind, loyal and the best friend I’ve ever had. I loved him more than anything. He was my favorite person in the world.
1/5/1980 – 8/11/2017
Forever LOVED, forever MISSED, forever IN OUR HEARTS, our beautiful Son!
Grateful for the gift of having had you in my life, and all that you taught me. 38 wonderful years together and countless memories. I wish it all could have had a better ending, but that was not God’s plan. I know you are at peace until we meet again.

In the words of W.H. Auden:
He was my North, my South, my East and West,
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song.
12/7/1985 – 8/23/2011
Son, brother, friend, coast guard, and role model. Dearly missed by those who experienced your love, we carry your memory in our hearts.
The kids, grandkids and I will love you forever!
