I went to Bodega Bay in 2001 while I was in the 7th grade and I almost fell off one of their cliffs and into the pacific ocean.

The scenery is so beautiful though.

I go to the school he went to. He was always a guy that you could talk to to cheer yourself up.
I saw him last Thursday ,but i didn't think that that would be the last time i would see him. My friend knew him more than me and is still having a rough time. R.I.P Luis

My son Adam and I came along just after this accident happened, and we stayed with the scouts and their leader while the rescue attempt was valiantly made. I never met Luis or his mother, but I am keeping them in my prayers as if I had known them for a long time. The scout leader and the two other scouts there at the time are remarkable people who wanted to do everything possible to locate and save Luis. If one of you knows Luis' mother, tell her my fatherly heart goes out to her and that she has a friend who is praying for her and her family.

I never knew the guy, well, i was in woodshop with him in zero period and always liked his can-do spirit of his. I never talked to him, and now, a few years later, looking back he didnt even seem like a 12-year old. He was a really good person.
