One month ago, on August 14, our lives changed drastically when we lost our precious little angel, Rah-Quan Palmer. He will be forever missed. We think about you everyday and are comforted to know that you're with God.

We are also remembering everyone else affected by the explosion, the heroic first responders/firefighters, Suffolk County Police officers, our fellow neighbors, Irving Justinano (resident), Michael Ray (plumber), and our condolences to the family of Patricia Salegna-Maqueda (insurance representative).

Please continue to pray everyone affected by this horrific tragedy. God Bless!!!

Rashamel & Christina, First I would like to express my deep sadness for the loss of your beautiful son. It's a shame we'll never know what his contributions to this world could have been, but knowing you Rashamel, whatever it would have been would have been done with love, compassion and an honest heart. I don't know if you'll remember me, but I was your school bus driver from Kindergarten to 4th grade at Great Neck Rd. School. You and your brother both were the sweetest little boys and I loved you to no end. My daughter Jenny was in your class for a couple of years, you guys were the best of friends. I can only offer you a hundred dollars, please accept it with my love and my tears. Miss Karen

Not all things can be understood in our lifetime and this is one of those things. Nevertheless I hope that you and your husband can find comfort in each other and when you get overwhelmed and frustrated that you won't take it out on each other. When anger and frustration take hold, hold onto and comfort one another. See the feature that is in your partners face that was in your sons face and kiss it and know that you sent that kiss to your baby in Heaven. God Bless you and your family.

This family lost everything. They were playing with their baby while watching SpongeBob with him and the next thing that happened was the gas explosion. They don't have the means to bury their son, the parents don't have clothes, food or shelter. This story touched my heart and I am happy to be a part of the bereavement team brought in to help them. Dig deep because they have to rebuild from nothing and go on without him. RIP Baby Boy
