Letter: Son didn't die in vain

Emilio and I recently sent a prayer message to our son Michael Esquibel, who passed away on Jan. 15, 2009, after he was struck by the train in Las Vegas while on his way to unload some trash from his worksite. The message to him went like this:

“Dearest Michael, you did not die in vain at the railroad crossing on your way to the transfer station, as now because of the very dangerous crossing and through the efforts of many, there are now in place the very necessary warning signs and signals that will prevent any more tragic deaths.

“We miss you every day — Mom and Dad”

Thanks from the bottom of our hearts to all those who were involved with getting someone to put these much needed arms, signs and signals in place.

Pray for us and for Michael.

Emilio and Helen Esquibel
