Seven years today, seven years you have been gone from our lives. Oh how we miss you still, your laugh, your smile your presents in our lives. It just doesn't seem fair, we miss out on your dreams, your happiness, your ups, yours downs, your love. How we smile when our friends and family tell us about the success of their children but our hearts aches. How we wish we had someone to talk about, to brag about, even to complain about. It doesn't seem fair, our only joy is knowing God showed us you are with him. You have no more fear, no more pain or sorrow, just love. We will live out the rest of our lives praising the Lord and doing his will so that we can be together again in heaven, oh how we look forward to that day! It is hard and not fair but Gods love is our purpose and we will not fail! Love you Kota,
Mom and dad

Five years today, our hearts aches for you like it was just yesterday. We miss you everyday, the years seem to pass by with no meaning. Oh how we long to see you, to hear your voice, to see you smile. Everyday is hard but this one is the worse, our comfort is knowing you are with God where we long to be.
Love you buddy,

Our hearts ache, God how I wish you where here with us today, we long to watch you grow up, your successes, your failures, your everyday presents in our lives.

Your memory is heavy on my heart today Kota. Two years went by so fast. I only hope the rest of time will also seem to go by in a blur until we can all be together again, in His Glory. I will especially pray for your mom and dad today. Their pain is great but only because the love they had for you was so complete. Rest In Peace Kota bear, until we meet again.

Hey buddie, sorry it took me so long to post our pictures celebrating your 21st birthday in Hawaii. As we promised we would when you graduated from high school. Like you wished, we had dinner in a nice Japanese restaurant and we all had a toast of saki to celebrate your 21st birthday like you wanted. It was a wonderful evening and we will always cherish it.
We might have been in paradise but I know where you are is a hundred billion times better! Love you buddie.

You would have been 21 today....when you and Luke were 16 and the 4 of us were in Vegas, we talked about getting back there when you two were 21. Everyone is remembering you today. Your family is in Hawaii, in your memory and we honor you and the joy you gave just by being you. My son was so blessed to have you as his best friend. His favorite times were spent talking to you for hours everyday. You leave a hole in our hearts but we take comfort in knowing that you are rejoicing in heaven and we will all be toagain. Until then, we will honor you and try to find joy in your memory.

They say time heals all wounds, but it’s been a year and today it seems like it was just yesterday. Our sorrow is the price we pay for our love and we loved you greatly and still do and will always.

God has shown us signs that you are with him, we know we will be together again. Oh what a wonderful day that will be! But until then we will carry you in our heart and remember all the wonderful time we had and the smiles you brought and thank God for the time we had with you!

We thank all of our wonderful friends and family for keeping us in their thoughts and prayers and for all of the wonderful thing you all have done for us. Please continue to remember Kota and don’t be afraid of talking about him with us. If it brings a tear to our eye, it’s not a sign of our sadness it’s a sign of our Love.

We love all of you!
Shena and Joel

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal. - From a headstone in Ireland

You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
or you can be full of the love that you shared,
you can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he is gone
or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
you can cry and close your mind be empty
And turn your back,
or you can do what he would want:
Smile, open your eyes, love and go on. – Unknown

Thinking of Kota, especially today.

Kota you will be missed by many, many people. I realize your work in this world was done, and now you have work to do in Heaven. Your life in this world was short, but it was complete; you touched so many people and made a difference in their lives for the better. We all are given tasks to do on earth, as we complete them , we are called back home. Rest in peace with our Heavenly Father, you were an awsome young man, you did an awsome job for our Lord, and I feel blessed to have known you. Love & Hugs

Darling Shena! I don't think I have the right words to express how deeply affected I am by this event. Never met your son but I have no doubt he was absolutely amazing! My heart is with you and your family.

I only knew Kota through his amazing mom Shena. You didn't know Shena without knowing her son. Our sons were the same age so I enjoyed hearing stories about Kota and comparing notes. My heart is heavy because of the fragility of life, but grateful of Shena's shining example of motherhood. My love is with you Shena.

Kota was the friend every mother dreamed of for their child. He was my son, Luke's best friend for 17 years. Fiercely loyal, always trusting, never judgmental and forever there for you. He and my son talked for hours everyday on their favorite platform, Discord. Often times they watched movies together, "virtually" from their separate homes. I watched him grow up and turn into a loving, smart and sweet young man. His departure hurts and will leave a big hole in our lives but I know he has his wings. I will miss you big guy!
