Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Present with the LORD!

Beautiful Daisy, inside out, loving, kind, genuine, friendly, witty, fun. Just a few characteristics of her beautiful personality. She's dearly missed, her smile, and her charm,  Daisy portrayed the simplicity of life at its best.
We dearly cherish her legacy. LOVE YOU FOREVER!

12th anniversary.

1 Peter 1:3-9
Praise to God for a Living Hope
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. This inheritance is kept in heaven for you,  who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time.  In all this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls. 

1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 
We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the Christians who have died will rise from their graves.  Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever.  So encourage each other with these words.

When peace like a river, attendeth my way;
When sorrows like sea billows roll;
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
It is well...with my soul... It is well, it is well, with my soul...

Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,
Let this blest assurance control,
That Christ hath regarded my helpless estate,
And hath shed His own blood for my soul.
It is well...with my soul... It is well, it is well, with my soul...

He lives--oh, the bliss of this glorious thought;
My sin, not in part, but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more.
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, Oh my soul.
It is well...with my soul... It is well, it is well, with my soul...

And, Lord, haste the day when our faith shall be sight
The clouds be rolled back as a scroll,
The trumpet shall sound, and the Lord shall descend;
Even so, it is well with my soul...
It is well...with my soul... It is well, it is well, with my soul...
~Horatio Gates Spafford [1873]

Many live long lives; though they make little impact, others live short lives and they make greater impact. Daisy impacted many; her life was short but full and fructiferous. Her last endeavor, at JU in Jacksonville, FL was powerful. And, she continues to impact friends, family, and most of all, her mom. Daisy will always be dearly remembered!

Commemoration in Memory of Daisy L. Cuilty-Beltran - Jacksonville University  

Oak Tree Dedication - February 22, 2007

Jacksonville University’s academic symbol (an oak tree) and logo (“JU” with an oak leaf) were inspired by the majestic oaks that grace the campus.
Together, the symbol and logo communicate both the university’s vision and its traditional values.

The oak leaf is a fitting element of the logo, underscoring Jacksonville University’s identity as an institution of higher learning nestled among acres of oak trees.

• A millennia-old icon, the oak is significant in many cultures, representing strength, courage and truth.
• For ancient Germanic tribes, oak groves were a place of worship.
• In Celtic legend, the oak was considered a holy tree.
• As a symbol in Christianity, the oak is associated with steadfastness in faith and virtue.
• In addition, the oak is considered a symbol of great achievement, accomplished through patience, dedication, perseverance and commitment to the truth.

With this said, JU feels that a most appropriate way to celebrate the memory of a smiling, vivacious, beautiful young woman who loved to dance, who loved our friends, so loved her family, and who loved this University.

On behalf of the University, I am pleased to officially dedicate this thriving young oak tree to the life and memory of Daisy Beltran, with the knowledge that it will grow strong and tall, providing beauty and shelter for many years to come to our campus community and to the children here at Wilma’s Little People’s School.

Bryan F. Coker, Dean of Students
Jacksonville University

In Honor of Mother's Day!  

May 6, 2010 - I found another poem Daisy wrote to me when she was 16 yrs. old (3 yrs. before she passed away.) Strangely enough I had not read it nor seen it. Not sure how it appeared in a folder with other items I had saved. To my surprise I found it just a few days before Mother's Day 2010. What a beautiful surprise! My dear daughter is still giving me moments of joy even after years of being gone!
I love you so much my dear daughter!

In Honor of Mother’s Day

When I first entered into this world
Your first was a miracle I was told
Through the years you’ve been a kind and gentle mother
Even though I probablY made your job tougher.
We’ve gone through so much these past 16 yrs.
And I will always hold you dear
When I turned one you taught my first words
But what came out of my mouth were nothing but slurs.
At two I began to learn how to walk
I would scribble all over the walls with a piece of chalk
At three you had to put up with my tantrums
Yet, you never gave up on me or run,
Because you’re my adoring mom.
You would primp my hair
With extreme care.
You threw me big parties
With yummy cakes, dressed in frilly dresses.
To me these were necessities.
You were always there for me.
Holding my hand.
Even when I was grumpy.
Eventually I became a teen
The hourglass was running out of sand.
My childhood left fast, it had seemed.
You would let me lean on you
When I would have fights with my best friend, Sue.
At first I hadn’t realized
That you were my best friend.

You were the one who dried my eyes.
You helped me with my homework.
But we decided to stop so we wouldn’t go berserk.
Sixteen came all too fast
But our relationship will always last
Dear Mom in honor of mother’s day
I want to emphasize how much I care for you
Today and everyday
Of my existence.
I appreciate you
So I give this poem to you
So it will forever, in your heart, stand.


Daisy Day  

On February 27, 2006, Wilma’s Little People, Day Care Center for Jacksonville University, where Daisy worked part-time during the last weeks of her life, held a commemoration in Daisy’s memory. 

Dr., Kay and Jeanine Garrett planned a beautiful and honorable ceremony where a black and white (casually, Daisy’s photography preference) dolphin’s theme picture which was drawn by a former student of the university, was unveiled in the walls of the center. 

Also, a picture of Daisy with the kids in the center’s wall was hung across the hall. Kids —ages 3-5— sang songs directed by their teacher. 

The celebration was a beautiful way of remembering Daisy, and making this day a Daisy Day!

Great smile  
"My smile is my signature" Daisy's remark!
Romans 12:2  
"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
