In honor of our lost.

Something we started on the RHV facebook page is a wall of photos of loved ones taken by violnet crimes. After a bit of time we have run out of space on Facebook and are going to house the archives of the RHV walls here. What we encourage you to do is fine the page your loved one’s photo is on and write their name down.

Please comment and leave a message for your loved one.

  1. Third row from the bottome, ninth from the left – this is my daniel – he was 15 when he grew his angel wings – his stepfather is responsible for his death. I miss you my darling – more each day

  2. As I look at this picture it is surreal that my 17 month old baby grandson is pictured here. We get so caught up in life that tragedies like these just seem to happen in other cities, other states. But, when we are impacted by the horrific events that land us in the darkest clouds of grief, it is humbling to say the least. My heart and prayers are will all our families and our loved ones pictured here. I am so very sorry for everyone’s loss. I pray that in every one of our cases, justice will be served. Currently we are awaiting the trial for the murderer of my grandson. It is a heavy load to bear, as all of you well know. I pray God’s Grace, Mercy and Love upon all of us. God Bless.

  3. My Grandson Malaikye is pictured on the fifth row, last picture on the row in a blue shirt. He had the most contagious smile ever. I bet you if you zoom in on his picture, you will smile at his little angelic face too. Rest in paradise my little angel. Not a day goes by that I don’t speak your name. Loving you baby boy,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  34. 2nd row from the bottom, 4th from the left. That’s my darling brother Malcom ”Mad Maxx’ Lafon. He was born on the 13 Sept 1966 and was killed on 27 December 2007 by a driver who went through a red stop light and hit him on his bike. Both he and his pillion were killed instantly. The worst part is that they still have not caught that driver. On postmortem his injuries were horrific as were those of his pillion. Not a day goes by that the pain gets any less, the tears slower or the longing diminish. I guess I will maybe let go of it all and accept it when the driver has been caught. 5 years later and its still fresh. People celebrate Christmas and New Year’s with happiness. I spend Christmas in a very deep dark black hole and it will never have the same meaning for me ever again. Miss and love you so very much Malcolm

  35. How can something like this wall, so sad & tragic, be so beautiful? It is a memorial to some very beautiful children of God. My grandson, Christopher “Michael” Pierce, is 8th row from top, 12 left (blue & white striped shirt). His precious remains were recovered in his truck at the bottom of Red River, Shreveport LA, 4 1/2 years after his 2003 dissapearance. He was murdered by the husband of his friend and co-worker. This man murdered her & 3-month fetus a month after Michael was recovered to stop her from going to the police with her knowledge that
    he murdered Michael. This man is in Angola serving life w/o parole for her murder. He has been charged, but is not serving time for killing Michael, I have peace in knowing that Michael’s justice will be in the Lord’s hands. My heart aches for you all & I grieve with you.

  36. My son, Chriistopher “Chris” Naylor Terrey, age 20 yrs 6 months, and 9 days…1st RHV Wall, First Row, Second picture. Murdered by his alleged best friend, December 2, 2010…My heart will NEVER recover…

  37. Joseph Threadgill my son 14th on the first row 6/6/88-8/28/2011 murdered at work shot several times we will not get over this it has forever changed our life…

  38. My nephew is on the 8th row, right under the W. He was taken from us on November 28th 2011. He was 22, the first born to my sister Rosana. His name is Isaac Joel Donez. His killer is Santiago Zamora, who is still on the run. Its been very hard, and frusterating. At times i feel as though it consumes me. I think about him, how my sister feels, and it hurts me so much. I have children, infact my 18 yr old daughter and Isaac were so close, They shared birthdays, being in the same month only 3 days apart. I can’t believe he is gone, and at times i feel consumed with grief for him. It feels as if no one is doing anything. I dont know what to do. I have a page set up for him. If you look under RIP Isaac Joel Donez aka Lil Cricket. I do my best to keep his face in the memories of all who knew him and those who dont, so they wont forget he still needs justice. Thanks RHV for your support of all these families, who not only have a place to tell their stories , but a place to vent. My condolences to all of you for the loss of your precious loved ones who are gone, my heart feels your pain. God bless

People say karma comes to those who do wrong but it cannot come soon enough for your killer! For all the pain he has caused killing you ! And14 years in prison for taking your life just isn’t enough ! The prison he put you in us forever ! I just hope to live long enough for him to receive his karma ! Mr. Charles Edens you too have a son and you might just receive the same as you gave that could be your karma!!!!

  43. This wall brings a little peace in the sense that I know we are not alone in our grief. Michael Abell was my little cousin and his birthday would be tomorrow. I miss him like crazy and wish to hell his murder would be solved, so maybe our family could have a tiny bit of closure. Love you Michael…happy bday.

  44. Victoria Knight, 6th row 7 over.It is hard to believe it has been nine years since I lost my precious daughter. I celebrate her life in heaven. Some have told me to move on with my life… Others have turned their backs. To deny my daughters memory is to deny her very existence. Her memory is my treasure. Through the tears, I take my treasure out and remember the gift of her life….The twinkle in her eyes…Her contagious laugh…Her wisdom about life… And the love she shared. She was a loving daughter, sister, mother and friend. Yes, there was tragedy… But the real tragedy was for those who never took the opportunity to get to know her and love her. She was an amazing young woman and she gave me some of the best years of my life. I cherish the gift of her life and the love we shared. Her memory is my hearts treasure.

They got two one received only 10 years he’s been out since Jan. 2, 2009. the other received 30 years he could be paroled Dec 14th 2023.
