R.I.P. Juan Lemus aka “del Slo SiR”

I had other stuff to bring you guys but I think today should be a time to have a moment of silence for one of our fellow enthusiasts. Juan Lemus aka “del Slo SiR” was involved in a car accident and tragically lost his life early Sunday morning of this past weekend. I didn’t know him personally but was familiar with his posts on NWP4Life and also share many mutual friends with him and I can’t even begin to imagine what they and his family are going through right now. It’s always a shame to lose someone within the community, especially consideirng all the lives they influenced and the smiles they put on other people’s faces everyday. It’s even harder to consider what his loved ones must endure losing someone special to them at such a young age. Over the years we’ve lost a couple of great people in this community and you never learn to accept the fact that someone is taken away from you so unexpectedly. What we can do however is pull together and give the friends and family of Juan Lemus strength to endure and remember the wonderful person that he was…

A moment of silence…

Rest in Peace… Juan Lemus “del Slo SiR” 12/12/1986 – 5/23/2010

  2. Thank you Joey for the words..
    There is more info on NWP4Life as well in the Lounge.
    There is also a paypal set up to help with the expense the family is about to endure.
    My heart goes out to his whole family bunch of people just like him. Genuine and truly loving people. A heartfelt bunch and it was a pleasure to meet them.
    We at the dSoc (Del Sol Owners Club) really lost a bother, friend, and owner.

  3. may you Rest in Peace…

    I’m Free

    Don’t Grieve for me for now I’m free,
    I’m following the path God has laid you see.
    I took His hand when I heard Him call,
    I turned my back and left it all.
    I could not stay another day,
    To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
    Tasks left undone must stay that way,
    I found that peace at the close of day.
    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joys.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
    Oh, yes, these things I too will miss.
    Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
    I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
    My life’s been full, I’ve savored much,
    Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
    Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
    Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
    Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
    God wanted me now, He set me free
