This looks like a decent neighborhood. What is happening in Oakland?

Juan, I just want to let you know that even though we haven't talk for a while. I still got love for you.


This was a man killed in the neighborhood he lived in for 29 years apparently by someone he knew.

He traveled throughout California, took his family, friends and at risk youth on trips.

Juan enjoyed the adventures of life.

He was a generous and loving person.

It has been a year and a day has not gone by when I didn't think of you. I feel your presence with me a lot. I relive the great times we had in my dreams. You are amazing. At times when I feel down you come and comfort me. I miss you. I love you. You my friend are the most genuine person I know. Forever in my heart you remain ALIVE!
