This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one Joel Ariza who was born in Pennsylvania on 14 April 1985 and passed away on 30 October 2009 at the age of 24. We will remember him forever.
I'd like the memory of me
to be a happy one,
I'd like to leave an afterglow,
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing
times and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those
who grieve, to dry before the sun.
Of happy memories that i leave
when life is done.
