My son Mario

by Leilani Noriega Sepulveda
(San Pedro,CA)

My son was murdered at home he was shot in front of his younger brothers and sisters... he died in the arms of his brother and sister..... He was so special he was everything to me and his family. To this day I can't understand why him... I can't never stop recalling this night. and as his brothers get older the fear I have takes over every thought of anything but to worry is it going to happen again. My son was one of a kind man... he truly was highly respected and loved by many. He did everything for his family... I lost my son but also at the same time a few of my other children have never gotten over that night they relive it many many times.. my daughter suffers badly and my son is totally not the same.... I can not go a day without recalling that night sometimes I get so angry then at other times the sadness overwhelms me... I pray that God watches over my children always and please help them heal... our family is not the same.... and without Mario to hold it together the future does not seem to look better...... how I wish to just hold him one more time to hug him so tight to just have my son back..... for just a moment if possible..... I miss him so so much..... I love you my son..... always forever.. your mama

Your son

How tragic for all of you! I know your pain sorrow anger and loss because death does that, rips into every emotion we have. You may need to get family consoling from a group you can time goes on. It is overwhelming for each of you and the mother hurts the most. I lost my son at 39. All the emotions you have are normal. How could you not feel them!
It is hard to comfort the others when we are broken too,that's why I suggest help......tho nothing will help in a sense. Death is hard to accept and a path no mother wants. I'm so sorry for your tragedy and pray you will find strength as a you walk this path.

Leilana I am so sorry for your loss of your son Mario to a senseless murder. A tragedy that his siblings witnessed and has traumatised all of you. This is all a mother can do is to Pray over her children every day and Leave them in God's hands and Protection. We never know what we or our children are saved from in life if we did not pray over them and ourselves.
If death then comes we know that God would have saved them from the fear and pain inflicted on them and didn't make sense. God protects us all the time, but some tragedies are acted out by senseless evil people who have no regard for Life and who gave it. A mother will worry and be concerned over her children/family all the time as we live with such turmoil in a world of change and turbulence. Violence and evil everywhere as Satan tries hard to take another life and disrupt the family he is out to destroy.
God is the one who holds all our tomorrows. Only with God's direction and help will your children be able to cope with and recover from the death of their brother and your Son. It is to God we seek healing for our losses of people from our lives. God is The Healer, and May God help you all as you grieve your loss of Mario, and Comfort you all with His Peace. May God protect all Mario's siblings and that your children will be safe in God's Care.
