SAN MARTIN-GONZALES -- CHRISTOPHER In Loving Memory Of Our Beautiful Son Christopher San Martin-Gonzales It has been a year and 6 months since you were taken from us and began your life with your true Father the Lord. Today we will honor your life (your birthday). You would have been 25 years old today. You loved life so much and loved to celebrate your birthday. You loved to be with your family and have your strawberry cake with cool whip you expected me to make every year for you since you were a little boy. So rest assured it will be made on your birthday as it always was in the past and we will celebrate in your honor. Everyday is a struggle for your Dad and I just to keep going. We shed tears for you everyday with memories such as, a picture of you, a song on the radio, the faces of your brother and your daughter who look just like you, the smell of your clothes hanging in our closet, and the many questions asking why. Words can't explain the heartache we live with everyday that your not here with us. No farewell words spoken, No time to say goodbye, You were gone before we knew it, And only god knows why. Son we love you and miss you very much. Continue to watch over us and give us the strength to keep us strong from above. We look forward to the day we will meet in heaven and reunite as a family. God Bless and Love you very much, Dad, Mom, Brother Jacob, and Daughter Marisa.
