Dear Son
Pain and suffering is to its end for my grandson Jayden Balcena, he is now in a place of beauty, where there is no war, no hate, and no death. Eternal life is to be brought forth through God by a soft glowing flame strong enough to hold all his children and containing a prayer that which all prayers are made, a life, that which all lives are created. You can't see this flame, yet you always know it is there. You can't touch this flame, yet you can always feel its presence Jayden is now with God, and God has a need for him. So, you see, Jayden did not die, he is reborn.
Love always
God Blees

Baby Jayden, I never knew you personally but your short life has made a great impact in yur family. I pray that your family will not be defined by your tragic death. My prayer is that they learn from it and help others but most of all forgive those responsible. God loves little children and I am sure you are nestled in his arms in heaven even now smiling and at peace. The Brown family sends love and prayers to your family and friends at this time.

I pray for you every night and know that there is nothing I can say to take the pain away, but know that we are all suffering together.....I love you and I am here for you.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to you at this time and always...

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory
and beauty belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed...
We feel lucky to have seen it.

The loss of a love one is so hard to face,
you just want to hide,
go some where and escape!
But death is something,
we all must go through,
I know it’s hard,
when it’s someone you loved and knew.

Just know now,
he is in a better place,
no more hurt or pain shall he face.
It seems unfair and yes this is true,
but he is in Heaven now
watching over me and you!

God has called him home to rest!!
And he’s being well taken care of
Because God knows best!

Our thoughts an prayers to you all. God Bless.

You gave your family so many smiles and loving memories, and we know that you all will be united one day. I pray not for you because you are with God and His angels, but I pray for your family that they will feel God's love and peace in their lives, and that whenever they think of you they smile. REST IN PEACE JAYDEN!!!

It seems like yesterday I was holding you in my arms at the hospital, fresh off the table. It was the best feeling a father could experience. As each day passed i watched you grow day by day. It was may 22,2010 you and i were in the bedroom watching shark tales, by this time you were pulling yourself up. The part came on where he was first announced the shark slayer, and everyone was in his apartment on top of the reef, and music started playing, you were laughing and jumping up and down in the crib. I started jumping on my bed as you were jumping in your crib. We were both laughing. Jayden i miss you so much it hurts to breath, but i know you are safe and happy bouncing on clouds looking down on us. So i will say this until I see you again, I love you and miss you dearly. It gets harder and harder each day. My precious son jayden, i love you.

Hello my loving son. Daddy wants to tell you that there is not one second of each day that passes that i don't miss you. You are a part of me my son, and i will miss you dearly.
