The Sunflower…

In remembrance of Ryan Gonzalez


As the sun peeks from behind Sicily’s Pizzeria

You finally have hope

The Astronaut is long gone

But we can’t forget him!

He is on a journey of a lifetime

While the sunflower big,bright, and yellow

It picks you up on your worst days and even keeps you up on your best!

It’s your light at the end of the tunnel,

Although the ground may be trashed, and the community may be different,

Put the violence aside and we are a family

Whether we like it or not

This is home, and the lingering smell of pizza captures many visitors attention

  • Making sure, he’s never forgotten.
