"Cpl. Jesús A. González Berrones, mi HEROE, mi niño Luna, mi hijo adorado, mi cielo hermoso, han pasado ya 12 años de tu partida, 12 años de no tenerte fisicamente cerca de mi y mi dolor no pasa, yo te dije en una ocasión que te visité en el cementerio que ya no te iva a llorar tanto para dejarte descansar en paz, pero mi niño hermoso NO PUEDO m'hijo, miro videos en donde Marines llegan y sorprenden a sus hijos, a sus esposas, a sus mamás y me da tanta tanta tristeza que nosotros no pudimos tener esa dicha, tu hijita, mi Lily preciosa ya cumplió sus 15 añitos y no te olvida, a veces pienso si yo le debo algo a la vida como para haberte arrancado de mis brazos y no logro entender, con tu partida me arrancaron un pedazo de mi corazón y me ha quedado un hueco y un dolor enorme que no he podido superar en estos 12 años, trato de consolarme al pensar que ya estás con Diosito y que en el cielo ya nadie te puede hacer daño por miles de guerras que puedan pasar.

Te adoro y te extraño tanto Mi Niño Hermoso, MI HEROE!!

Doy las gracias a todas estas personas maravillosas que no se olvidan de nuestro HEROE Cpl. Jesús A. González, ya que con sus palabras y cariño mi querido hijo seguirá vivo!!

HASTA LA VICTORIA SIEMPRE, CPL. JESUS A. GONZALEZ!!"

"Gonzalez,

Do you remember all the tattoo designs you had me make for you while in Tank School? Did you ever get one done? We never really spent much time hanging out. Yet the day you passed away I was in line for chow in Baghdad and I was crushed. We had lost another outstanding Marine. You will never be forgotten, Brother.

Semper Fi!"

I am still in the service a SGT with the HHT 3/278TH Armored Cavalry Regiment. May I see you at Gods appointed time. Brothers forever."

I wish I could take the families pain away but I can't. I am committed to loving ALL people, myself and our environment. I am committed to working on my happiness everyday because so many have died for my freedom to live my life. Thank you is not enough but it is all I have.

"In Loving Memory..Its been a year..

At the rising of the sun and at its going down, We remember them.
At the blowing of the wind and in the chill of Winter, We remember them.
At the opening of buds and in the rebirth of Spring, We remember them.
At the blueness of the skies and in the warmth of Summer, We remember them.
At the rustling of leaves and the beauty of Autumn, We remember them.
At the beginning of the year and when it ends, We remember them.
As long as we live, they too will live;
for they are now a part of us, as we remember them.
Rest in Peace Dear Soldier!! We will NEVER FORGET!"
