Last night while I was trying to sleep, My son's voice I did hear, I opened my eyes and looked around, But he did not appear.
He said, "Mom, you've got to listen, You've got to understand, God didn't take me from you, Mom, He only took my hand. When I called out in pain that day, The moment that I died, He reached down and took my hand, And pulled me to His side. He pulled me up and saved me From the misery and pain. My body was hurt so badly, I could never be the same. My search is really over now, I've found happiness within, All the answer to my empty dreams And all that might have been. I love you all and miss you so, And I'll always be nearby. My body's gone forever, But my spirit will never die. And so, you must all go on now, And live, and understand...... God did not take me from you, He only took my hand."
This memorial website was created to remember my son Stevie Ray Garza who was born in Pasadena,Tx on August 17, 1991 and passed away on July 31, 2007. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.
Stevie Ray was the my first born son and an inspiration to me and many others. There were few people who knew him as a brother and many who wish he was. stevie was always laughing and making fun of his brothers & sisters, & mainly of me (mom). But there was nothing that he wouldn't do for someone. He had a heart like no other. He always found ways to make you laugh, pee your pants sometimes too. He loved being the classroom clown. There were never dull moments when he was in the same room with you. He loved church. Can you believe that.? Stevie loved to rap, freeslyle, perform at concerts, carshows, and just be a straight up teen. He was a leader never a follower. When you met him it was always in instant connection. Everyone wanted to be with him or be like him. I remember always coming home from work & he would be there with all his friends wrestleing on the living room floor, & I use to come home & say "please guys go home already".What I would do to just come home and see him with his friends wrestleing on my living room floor. But he is an Angel now & watching over all his friends & family. Spread your wings Baby for a "G" never dies. We love you mijo & miss you dearly. Love MOM
My Mom Is A Survivor
My Mom is a survivor, or so I've heard it said.
But I hear her crying at night when all others are in bed.
I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand.
But like the sands on the beach that never wash away...
I watch over my surviving mom, who thinks of me each day.
She wears a smile for others...a smile of disguise.
But through Heaven's door I see tears flowing from her eyes.
My mom tries to cope with death to keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows it is her way to survive.
As I watch over my surviving mom...through Heaven's open door.
I try to tell her that angels protect me forever more.
But I know that doesn't help her or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her...And show her that you care.
For no matter what she says...no matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal~!
Well Ray its almostHALLOWEEN.....your favorite time of year. I remember when you use to come home from school and tell me that you were going to take your brothers trick or treating with your friends. Then your friends would get there and you would get the boys and tell them to go without you because you were going to stay with me and pass out candy. you would get all dressed up to where no one knew it was you and you would sit in the chair and wait for the kids. when they got there you would scare the crap out of them. HALLOWEEN is the hardest pear of the year for me to go thru.... wonder all the time if you would still be dressing up and scarring the little kids. Your little brother is about to be a dad, can you believe that? Beno a daddy? Wish you were here to see the new addition to our famly. But I know that you see us from above. we LOVE & MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH..... TAKE CARE MY SON AND SAVE A SEAT NEXT TO YOU FOR WHEN I GO VISIT YOU......LOTS OF LOVE....HUGS.....& KISSES.....MOM
Hey mijo remember when you and Angel took this picture at the car show... You guys were really having fun...
Just want you to know that not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Alot has happened this past year. You told your sister she was gonna have another baby boy before your next birthday, but you didn't say anything about the other three that came along after Daniel Ray. Marty & Jenny had baby "Marayah" Puma & Cuzin Jenny had baby "Deziray" and your best friend Isaac and your cousin Chica had baby "Isaac Ray" So see Stevie they all carry a part of you in there. At your memorial service there were alot of people. Everyone who cared was there, we will never forget my son. Your nephew "Andrew" is getting so big and is one of the smartest kids in pre-k. He's a tough lil boy just like his uncle Stevie. Well your sister is pregnant again, and Angel well she still don't want any babies. Mijo please watch over Angel the most cause she really misses you and I think she still feels like it was her fault what happened to you., She loves Mijo we all do. Now as for your brothers Michael And Alvino, well mike lives in Austin with Missy cause he was getting into alot of trouble here, but now he's doing the same out there. I don't know know what to do with him. I don't want him to think we don't care, but he carries alot of anger. Now Alvino, he's just into his games and girls... He's still very popular in school and very smart. As for me mijo, I try to live day by day. It's hard Stevie cause I see your pictures in the house and I start to cry. I might be moving away to McAllen for my job. They offered me a good position, though I'm not sure if I should take it or not. Mijo stay smiling and keep your family safe,watch down on all of us and know that you're in our hearts forever... I love you "STEVIE RAY"......................................MOM

Hey mijo, just here at work looking @ ur website. Reading & remembering all the funny things that u use to do & say. I think I read everyone's stories of u atleast 50 times if not more. It's been 4 years now that u left this cruel & ugly world. I wish I could be with u up there, but GOD has other plans 4 me. Not sure what they are yet, but I know its going to be good.. I knw u see me cry & hurting & I try to b strong & I wear a smile 4 all to see, but if u look past it u can see the pain I carry from loosing u. Im not as tough as I claim 2 b Ray. Its like Im holding on to something 4reasons Im not 2 sure of. But Ive been told that wen ur in the spiritual world as u r, u see all that we go thru, the mixed emotions, the good, the bad, the happy & the sad. Sometimes I just want to see all the good & not worry about anybody or anything. But when I do that someone always has to put me down in some way or another. I come home crying sometimes asking myslf "why does my family hate me so much"? I dont understand why? Maybe I never will know. I just have to look past it all & just try to move forward with my life. Be strong for MIKE & BENO. AndLil Edward as well. You have 3 nephews now all from Chistina. I call them "BEBE'S KIDS"..They r a handful I can tell u that. Baby Daniel is so much like u. He is the tough one just like his Uncle Stevie....Jett is the baby..I call hiim the"Lil Instagater" because he just loves to cause trouble and run when it all starts to go down. They are so funny its just fun to watch them as they play and wrestle & get into things that they're not suppose to get into. And Andrew well he still remembers u as if u were still here. He says that u viisit him in his dreams & tells me what u say. He knows when Im thinking of u as if he sees right thru me. Angel just got engaged 2 wks ago to Chriis. She seems to be doing well & she is happy. As long as he takes care of her that's all that matters. And for Cheena, well with 3 boys & Anthony she has her hands full. Plus she takes care of Edward for me while I work. Mijo just know that we all love u & miss u so much. I knw I will see u again one day, But until Then " Keep Smiliing My Lil Boy Blue".....Love Mom....<3<3<3
