Jason and I had some great memories. I would like to share a song that was one of his favorites then. I heard this song the other day and it keeps on playing in my mind over and over. I will miss you so much Jason.

Third Eye Blind-

I'm only pretty sure that I can't take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder
What are we fighting for
When I say out loud
I want to get out of this
I wonder
Is there anything I'm going to miss
I wonder How it's going to be
When you don't know me
How's it going to be
When you're sure I'm not there
How's it going to be
When there is no one there to talk to, between you and me
'Cause I don't care
How's it going to be
How's it going to be
Where we used to laugh
There's a shouting match
Sharp as a thumbnail scratch
A silence I can't ignore
Like...
The hammocks by the doorway we spent time in
Swings empty, don't see lightning like last fall when it was always
About to hit
Me
I wonder how's it going to be when it goes down
Hows it going to be
When your not around
Hows it going to be
When you found out there was nothing
Between you and me
'Cause I don't care
How's it going to be.
Hows it going to be
When you don't know me any more
And how's it going to be
Want to get myself back in again
The soft dive of oblivion
Wanna taste the salt of your skin
The soft dive of oblivion
Oblivion
How's it going to be
When you don't know me any more
How's it going to be
How's it going to be

i am so sorry to hear about Jason passing, i will miss that happy smile, whenever you saw him. Didn't get a chance to get to know him very well but i will always think of him riding the streets in montebello with his beautiful flag flying behind him. That will alway bring a smile to my face. He will surely be missed. Please, if any one has information as to who did this terrible act, please let the police know.

The following was posted at the request of friends of Jason.
Jason's Family has set up a bank account at Bank of America to help defray the funeral expenses. It is in the name of Jason M. Rivera and the account number is 325000998800.
Instead of flowers or balloons, it is requested that you donate to this account. The friends and family of Jason thank you for your help.
I made a donation today to Jason's Memorial Fund listed above. The account is at the Montebello Bank of America branch on Whittier Blvd. but donations can be made at any Bank of America branch.

The bank staff were kind and helpful even tho' I arrived at exactly closing time.

I stopped by and spoke to Vanessa and dropped some $$ into the jars. There were a lot of friends and helpers washing cars and it seemed to be successful. Look for another one next weekend.
