2 Years Ago Lilly's Life Changed Forever

Lily's case remains unsolved but our resolve to find her is unwavering. We remain strong, focused and working very hard to find answers.

Sunday, May 31st, 2009, we had a Justice March and Candle-light vigil to mark the 2 year anniversary of Lily's disappearance. Lily's family, friends and supporters met at Cocowalk. We put on our white T-shirts, held signs and passed out Lily's missing person posters. It was a cloudy day with bits of rain (Maybe the reason why media didn't show?) but there was plenty of traffic and movement in the Grove. I felt sick at heart watching Lily's mother, Lucely that day, and Lilly's elderly grandmother with Lilly's little boy, Palden sitting innocently in his stroller.

WHAT IF

About an hour later we marched through the streets of Coconut Grove, five blocks to the location where we held the vigil; steps away from where we believe Lily's life was taken. We didn't know what to expect. But as our group approached 3440 Percival Ave, a City of Miami police officer arrived and parked his police car down the block. He was friendly and cooperative and stayed until the end.

Night began to fall. Lucely said a few words and thanked everyone for their support and prayers, (I tried my best to translate) candles were passed out and Lily's grandmother said a prayer. Afterward, we had a balloon release with the help of Palden, Lilly's 2 year old son. He released purple balloons and said "I love you mom" and "we miss you". He's a big boy now and is well aware of Lily's absence.

On behalf of Lily's family and friends please accept our heartfelt thanks to each and every person who came out and shared this moment with us. I would like to thank Private Investigator Joe Carrillo, whose continued efforts and commitment we're so grateful for. Thank you for caring and keeping her case moving forward! Thanks to everyone who has helped in the fight to find Lily. (Including my Twitter friends, Facebook community!) Thank you to each and every person, who continues to visit this blog, your messages of encouragement and prayers give us strength during this very difficult time. We are forever indebted to you.

Please check back as we update information. Your continued support is critical to bring Lilly home! We will not let Lily's story go away. Together we will find our missing loved ones!
