We are asking you on this day, to go out and be a blessing to somebody else that is in need. Everywhere you look, there is hurt and pain, but you can be the one the make a difference in somebody’s life. Be a blessing to somebody and share your testimony with us by hash tagging #livelikethatlovelikethat
Bear with me as I share with you who Daniel is…
Acknowledging that our son has transferred from this life to eternity in heaven, I don’t like to speak of him as past tense because he is more alive now than ever before.
So who is Daniel?
His desire was to create an open heaven thru his life. His days were spent helping people in a variety of ways. If you were down and out he would lift your spirits, get you on a journey to doing something with your life from A-Z. His constant joy and incredible personality was contagious, you knew when he entered a room. If you had the privilege of meeting him, you had a friend for life.
On November 11, 2013, at the end of a long day finishing an outing with some of the youth he was working with, his life here on earth came to an end.
He had just turned 33; His plans were to establish a strong Youth Home for boys who were struggling. Also to create a program for low-income families to be able to purchase a home for a greater quality of life.
Our desire as his parents is to continue his work. Although the City of Pomona has brought us great sorrow and his absence in our lives is constant pain. We are committed to bringing resources to this city to help families who have been affected and or victimized by many types of crime.
Daniel’s ringtone on his phone alarm each morning was a song “I Give Myself Away”. He truly did! He also wrote on his Bible, “IT’S NOT THE DURATION OF YOUR LIFE BUT THE DONATION OF YOUR LIFE THAT COUNTS”. If all of us were to live like this…together we could change the world.

We are currently in the process of establishing the Daniel Diaz Foundation. This foundation’s aim is to connect and provide youth with the necessary resources to succeed in life and draw closer to God. Educational grants will be awarded to young men and women demonstrating a sincere desire to overcome negative influences in their lives. A youth ranch for boys, Daniel’s House, will also be developed to allow young men the opportunity to escape their unstable living environments as they build life skills within a healthy Christian environment.
