Would have been your 46th Birthday today. You were the first person I thought of this morning as I got up and blow out the candle I burned for you all night. I still miss you as if it were yesterday and you will always be thought of while we get our grandchildren ready for a big night of Trick or Treating. As Nick and Tim and other were getting ready we spoke of Uncle Gil. You will be celebrated in our thoughts throughout this special day. With all my love, your Sister. Until we meet again.

A year has come and gone and yet it still doesn't seem real. You are still very much a part of our daily conversations, because we miss you so. You are truly loved by your family, baby brother. Gone but not ever forgotten. I love you.

Gil, I will love you and miss you forever. Life has its idiosyncracies and a way of keeping us all united. I will never forget our time together. Even after this year, I still feel your presence.

Dearest Brother, another Christmas has come and gone and it was very different. Just like the Christmas after Dad passed. We were all together with the exception of you. But you were in our hearts and prayers. It has been a rough year without you, but I know as time goes on it will get a little easier. I love you always, my dear baby Brother.

Merry Christmas! I know you're having the best Christmas ever Gilbert. I hate to say it but I'm a bit jeolious because you allready are with the Lord Jesus and I'm still here on the earth. I really miss you bro, but it's ok because I know I'll be with you and all the other Saints someday when my time arrives. I'm ready now, but it's not up to us when the time comes. I always remember eating my first real tamale that your family made during Christmas when I was a little kid. I know you probaly can't really hear me, but I'm sure God the Father relays prays to our loved ones. Well, I'm off to Christmas morning worship services Gilbert. I'll see you soon!!!

Dad I just wanted to say Happy Birthday. Everyday I think about all the good times we had together. I learned something from this experiance "don't ever take life for granted because you never know when God will take your love one away from you". Everyone will always have a piece of you when they look at me your daughter your pride and joy.

Contreras Family:
I am so sorry for your loss. I just learned of this sad news 2 nights ago. Gil and I had worked together way back when we were both employed with Diamond Tile about 17 years ago!Gil was the kind of person who you would want in a co-worker and friend; sincere,honest,hard working, and also an occasional joke or two. It was a pleasure knowing and working with him. He will be truly missed. I am so sorry that I was unaware of his illness, it was just recently that I had asked around in the "Tile Business" of Gil's where abouts so that we can again work side by side. Gilbert you will be missed and I will think of you as I stack that tile! Peace be with you Contreras family~~~~

Today would have been your 45th Birthday. Talking to Mom last night only brought back her memories of the night her and Dad took us out treak or treating and she was about to give birth to you. The memories are painful for her because you never think you will out live your children. It is still very painful for me as well. Everytime someone asks about the granite around the fireplace or the rock on the walls I feel sad, I wish I could share these things with you. To my cute little baby brother with all my love on this day.

I Love you always until we meet again.
