    Where was this published? It's such a wonderfully written sentiment. I sure hope both parents receive all the emotional support they need.

    I was very surprised, but not surprised, by the news of EG's suicide. I really hope that somewhere in those three notes is the truth and an airtight confession. I honestly doubt that there was anyone else involved - I think that she was just a very hateful woman, possibly with a drug addiction, who could not control her anger. I listened to an interview with a friend of EG yesterday and the excuses and insinuations that Lucas's father had a part in her death made me angry. Poor sweet Lucas paid the price for her hate and now both families will live with all of this loss.

    RIP Little Man :vigil: and may both families find peace in the future.

    Lucas Hernandez

    Lucas was a child full of love, hope and joy. He brightened every life he touched and made the world a better place. He leaves behind his heartbroken parents, Jonathan Hernandez and Jamie Taylor-Orr; his sisters, Holly Taylor and Mia Hernandez; and brother, Easton Taylor. He also leaves behind maternal grandmother, Robin (Gramma) Taylor; great-uncle, Steve Lovensheimer; great-grandmother, Joan (Nana) Lovensheimer; maternal uncle, Jeremy Jones; aunt, Bethany (Uncle Bethany) Jones and cousin, Anthony Rodriguez; paternal grandmothers, Bobbie (Beej) Jo Santo and Cyndi (Ama) Heard of New Mexico; paternal great-grandparents, Glenn and Judith Heard, Jeannie (Mema) Houchin, Eugene and Jean Santo, Jo (Granny Jo) Bunch, and Tana Hernandez; paternal grandfathers, Joel Hernandez and Brian (Poncho) Santo of New Mexico; paternal aunts, Hayley Bruns, Chelssea (Aunt Sissy) Bratcher, Brianna (Bam-Bam) Santo; paternal uncles, Dustin Bracher and Anthony Santo and cousin Camden Santo. Lucas was preceded in death by great-grandfathers, Frank Lovensheimer and Gilbert Hernandez. He was also a treasured student of Mrs. Melissa Allen, of Beech Elementary School, a place he adored and a teacher he loved. Lucas was a wonder to behold, a smiling, funny, quirky, goofy boy who made each day better for those who had the honor of knowing him. He was the type of boy that could play with trucks and cars all day long, then drop everything so he could play dolls with his sister. He was kind, caring, and compassionate to all those around him, striving to show them how much they meant to him. As you can tell, from all the nicknames above, he had a special relationship with each and every one of us. He loved to cuddle and wrap his little body in the arms of those he adored. He could endlessly sit on a lap, being rocked and held. He wouldn't simply tell you that he loved you once. Instead, he would tell you over and over just to make sure you knew how special you were to him. Lucas embodied the best of us all. He was goodness and light in a tiny package. He was God's perfect child, gifted to us five years ago, and he will be missed by us all. It is impossible to express the true depth of despair our family is feeling. Lucas was the center of our universe, the focus of our lives. He was his daddy's little mini-me, but he was always momma's boy. We can't begin to imagine how to live our lives without him. A private family service for Lucas has been held, but we would love to offer our entire community the opportunity to help us say goodbye to our beautiful child at 1:00 PM on Saturday, June 30th. This service will be open to the Public, Community Leaders, Law Enforcement, Friends, Family and the Media. Public Memorial Service: WSU Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex, 5015 E. 29th St, Wichita, KS 67220.

    ‘I’ve got to move out this home I shared with Emily’: Lucas Hernandez’s dad says he faces daily harassment after tragic death of his only son [EXCLUSIVE]
    by Leigh Egan
    June 18, 2018

    It’s been almost a month since the remains of missing Wichita boy, Lucas Hernandez, were found, but his father says it’s difficult for him to find closure because people to continue to follow him and drive by his house.

    “They drive by to see if I’m home,” Jonathan Hernandez explained to CrimeOnline. “They put on Facebook that I’m in my back yard or that I’m home or when I’m not there. It’s constant.”

    Hernandez is referring to random strangers who reportedly attempt to check on his whereabouts and what he’s doing, which started after his son, 5-year-old Lucas, was reported missing on February 17. Hernandez’s live-girlfriend, Emily Glass, was supposed to be taking care of the little boy when he disappeared. She initially told authorities she took a nap and when she woke up, Lucas was gone.

    On May 24, private investigator David Marshburn found Lucas’ remains after Glass led him to a secluded location in Harvey County, Kansaes. Although Hernandez has never been considered a suspect in the disappearance or death of his son, he claimed that numerous people in Wichita, where he lives, continue to keep tabs on him, “sleuth” him, and insinuate he may have somehow been involved.

    Hernandez said he pleaded with the public to allow him privacy to mourn, but the continuous harassment is too difficult to handle. He’s is the process of trying to find a new home in an attempt to avoid those who drive by house and post unsubstantiated rumors online, and also because it’s becoming increasingly difficult to live in a home where he lost his son and then later, his former girlfriend.

    “I’ve got to move out this home I shared with Emily.”

    The home in question was the residence where Lucas was last seen at and later became the residence where Glass, a person of interest in Lucas’ death, allegedly killed herself with a rifle. Although authorities have not officially ruled Glass’ death a suicide, Wichita officers announced that her death appears to be an “apparent suicide.” Hernandez said he no longer supported Glass after she led Marshburn to his son’s body.

    The grieving father, however, said he has no plans on leaving Wichita. He’s seeking a new line of work that would allow him to stay local. Hernandez’s current job keeps him out of state for weeks at a time. His absence has made it difficult to obtain parental rights to his youngest child, 1-year-old Mia, who was taken into state custody when Glass was arrested in late February for child endangerment.
    “My job requires me to be out of town three weeks at a time. I want to be here for my daughter and do everything it takes to regain custody of her. That requires me to be available anytime for whatever the state needs or my daughter needs. I need to stay local now that I am her only parent and what I’ve got to do.”

    Authorities still haven’t announced the Lucas’ official cause of death. Officials are currently waiting for the boy’s toxicology report results.

    Meanwhile, a public memorial is scheduled for Lucas on June 30 at the Wichita State University Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex, located at 5015 E. 29th St. N, in Wichita. Flowers can be sent to the complex on June 29 and June 30. Hernandez reiterated that the media and public are allowed at Lucas’ memorial, but he doesn’t want anyone stopping by unannounced at his home.
