Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Brandon Martinez who was born in Massachusetts on July 18, 1991 and passed away on February 05, 2007 at the age of 15. We will remember him forever. 

He was the son of Julio Martinez and Tracy Sidilau. Brandon was a sophomore at Leominster High School and a member of St. Leo’s Parish in Leominster. He was a really fun kid to be around, he enjoyed playing video games, watching television, going to the movies, playing paintball with his friends and basketball games in his backyard. Brandon loved spending time with his family, especially going to his grandma’s house for his favorite food steak.

He is going to be dearly missed by his family and his friends. 

Another year has passed. 10 years ago today you left this world, but you will always be in our hearts.  So, now we continue to celebrate YOU and all the hearts you touched.  There's not a day that goes by that our hearts are not aching for you!  We all know that you're looking down upon us and we feel your presence with every soft blow of the wind and your tears in the mist.  The stars shine with your smile and your love.  Rest in peace sweet one - we love and miss you!

His legacy
When Tomorrow starts without me  

When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly Love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.

I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For the emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His golden throne,

He said"This is eternity,
And all I've promised you.
Today for life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true,
Though there were times you did some things,
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand
And share my life with me?"

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

In loving memory of Brandon Martinez 1991-2007

A Hero Is  
     A hero can be alot of things.  I believe that there are certain qualities in a hero.  One quality that a hero has to have is something good that they are known for, another quality is that they should have a good character.

     You have to be known for something good that you did in order to be considered a hero.  For example, firemen are considered heroes because they help people from raging fires.  Policemen are also considered heroes because they prevent bad crimes from happening.  Also, if you help the poor you can be considered a hero.

     A hero should have some kind of good character.  You can't be a hero if you do bad things and are unkind to people.  Most kind people give money to the poor.  I believe that people that do that are considered heroes.  You could probably do something little and still be considered a hero to most people.

     To conclude, a hero has to be a kind, loving person.
