ForeverMissed
This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, David Arroyo, 36, born on August 28, 1979 and passed away on May 30, 2016. We will remember him forever.


David's Prayer, I overheard him pray the last time he visited me in Las Vegas from May 15-21, 2016 

Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy.  Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; To be understood as to understand; To be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; It is in pardoning that we pardoned; and It is in dying that we are born to eternal life.

Time is passing but our memories stay fresh,
Your laugh can be heard an your smile be seen,
Your humor was funny an your thoughts profound, our remembrance of you will always be long.
We miss you David, our hearts are sad,

Rest in peace David, we look to the sky, we'll be with you again when time goes by.

God Bless You Son

It's the one year anniversary of your passing David. We've missed your smile, jokes, working in the yard, and cooking. You must be over joyed now that Eva is with you going for walks and running on the beach. When the light in the cabinet and fan in the dinning room go on, we know that you're visiting. Be at peace David. We love and miss you.

My dear son, today is two months since you've been gone; I miss you so very much! Time has stood still for me; at times I cannot even breathe. I am struggling to find my "new normal" knowing that I will never get over the loss of you, not in a day or month or in a million years! I love you my son David forever and a day!

I'm lighting a candle for you David. I want you to know that you're in my heart and praying for you. I know you're here and watching over Eva. We'll take good care of her so there are no worries. Be at peace David with all my blessings. I love you very much and miss your smile. God bless you David..your spirit is free now.

We are not physical beings that have the occasional spiritual experience, but rather we are spiritual beings that have the occasional physical experience.

Our paths never crossed, David, although I feel that I knew you through long conversations about you with your mother. I do know that, although troubled, you lived your life as best as you could. It’s also obvious by the number of heart felt wishes of bon voyage here, that your wonderful spirit walked forth and touched many lives in this momentary physical experience of yours. May God bless you, David, your family, and your friends during this time of your passing.

And may I humbly offer to you and your friends here, for what comfort it may afford, that as your ship slowly sails away from this shore, and as you look back to see everyone’s tears of sadness and waves of goodbye start to fade in the distance, take comfort in knowing that there are just as many tears of joy and waves of hello from your loved ones on the other shore who are eagerly awaiting your arrival.

David's Trip to Alaska

Shared by Anita Teran on June 28, 2016

In very early May, 2016 David flew to Anchorage, Alaska to "visit" his dear cousin, Albert who had been living in Alaska for the last 6 years when he moved from us here in Las Vegas; David was so very excited about this trip; he was going to experience Alaska; he wrote a detailed journal everyday of his trip and took videos and pics as well! When David first told me about his trip..it was for a "visit" and he was extremely conflicted because he would not see me on Mother's Day...but I encouraged him to go and he planned to fly here to Las Vegas to spend a week with me to celebrate Mother's Day a little late. So as David is in Alaska he is calling me or texting me everyday...then he was telling me he and Albert were on a road trip to see the state's capital, Juno and he was going to see the Glaciers...I was excited for them both.  Next communication I have with him he says he is on a ship/vessel kind of like a small cruise ship!!! I am so very happy he was doing this with Al and he sounded so happy and excited at the beauty he was experiencing. He said his return flight would be Sunday, May 15th and he would let me know if he needed me to pick him up!  On Sunday morning he called and told me he arrived in Las Vegas and a friend had picked him up and needed help with a move and he would be to my house mid afternoon and wanted me to be ready to go get Thai Food at our favorite place, Basil Lime when he finally arrived ...I went to door and peeped thru and saw him there with this huge smile on his newly bearded face and a backpack on...I could see someone behind him but could not make out who it was...yet! opened my door and as I was giving him a big hug and kiss he said Hi Ma...look who I brought home? Happy Mother's Day!!! My nephew, Albert was behind David...a beautiful shock went thru my body...he then said he was sorry for lying to me about it being a "visit" but they both wanted to surprise me!!!! I am so grateful to have my nephew home here in Las Vegas with me! ❤️
