"HE MOON AND THE STARS"

Gaze up at the moon
For the moon brings him peace
For now I do it for him
Cause it does the same for me
And look up at the stars
For the stars do the same
Glancing upon this beautiful sight
Is such a better way
To carry on
Carry on of this darkened
Darkened day
The day God called you home
The day he pulled you away
From your loved ones
And your friends
It made us feel
like it was the end
But we all know that the
Bright and beautiful light
That lifted your soul to rest
Only represented your time
I use to look up at the night sky
Every now and then
And i never thought anything of it
But now your time has came
And i have to live above it
So now when i look up at the night sky
I think of you
And the beautiful things you use to say
And the wonderful things you use to do
Your beautiful smile reminds me
Of the moons smile
And your bright and shinnig eyes remind me
Of those bright and shinning stars
So forever this will remind me of you
Forever the moon and the stars...

rest in peace

it has taken a while for me to revisit this place
back to the beginning
everyday its hard to imagine he's gone
so much of him lingers
and i realize how dependent i was on him
after re-reading this article
i realize how insensitive it was
and i don't even know how this person was suppose to do this article justice
when i found out at 9:30 that same night
it just sickens me
to set the record straight
his name was and still is and forever will be
Robert Jacob Zaragoza
baby brother

i know your in the bestest party up there
and we are all still in line
I think about you every day
i truely do
while everyone else forgets......
i miss you :(

Jacob, your Grandpa Beto has just walked up the stairs to heaven. Hopefully you have found each other and are surrounded by love and peace in the presence of the Lord. We miss you dearly! You came to me in my dreams the other night and brought me the most beautiful warmth. You had a huge smile and gave me the biggest hug. You seemed very happy..it was comforting. Thank you for visiting me and I look forward to many more hugs and smiles! Love you Mijo!!

I know its been 3 years but I still can belive he died. He died outside of Friendly Village, the mobile home park. I live there and idk who he went to visit in the park but when I was walking down to go to 7eleven to buy some Slurpees, i see him going full speed down the hill with his bike. Next thing you know, the stupid bus hits him right in front of me. I screamed. It was like one of those things that you see in movies where someone gets hit but you can't believe that its happening in real life! I cried all day long and night when that happened. I mean it happened right in front of me!!! I wouldve called for help right away but I was in 6th grade at the time with no cellphone. I was traumatized so I ran back home. Once my parents got back from work I told them everything. They saw how scared I was so they took me to go get what I was gonna get from 7eleven. As we exited, we saw paramedics, policemen, and other cars & people surrounding where I guess he was dieing. His mom came to Hollingworth to talk about him and after her story I felt like telling her that I saw him get hit, but she was crying enough already. I never knew Robert but whenever February comes around, I always put roses on the sidewalk where he died. I'm so freaking sorry for what happened to him. Rest in Peace Robert!

I think about Robert very often if not everyday. I didn't know him. He did look in my eyes as He rode his skateboard pass me as I was going down the hill from the mobile home park. I blinked seen the bus. I couldn't believe it. Till this day I can't drive over that area. I go around the block to the left, left, left left back on to Valley. I try not to think about the whole incident. I still cry like it happened yesterday. I was the one that held your hand and prayed with/for you. Love you Baby Boy. See ya tomorrow.

Can anyone tell me where Robert was laid to rest?
A regret in my life. I didn't go to the funeral. I should have gone. My heart was crushed.
