Well, my friend I still find myself pinching my arm and trying to wake up from a dream when I think about you gone.I want to Say Happy Birthday on November 1st. You know we were born a year apart but only 5 days apart on the calender. I made fajitas today and thought about all the things we did together in life. I can't wait to see you again Gilbert. God knows when each and every one of us will leave this life. I never question God. He knows everything. Tell him hi for me please. You were one of the main reasons I would come home to visit. I'll never forget you carnal. I know you are in the best hands know to mankind. Our Lord. So, I'm sure I'll see you soon enough Gil. Until then, Glory Adios!!!

Dearest Brother Gilbert, today marks 2 months since you left us even though it seems like yesterday. I can still hear your voice when I think of you. Mom still cries every time we talk about you, you were the baby and you will be always. As I write to you it still tugs at my heart but my memories are well preserved. I will love you always. Your sister

Dear Contreras Family,

My sister Linda and I went to school with Gilbert and Fernando at Bowling Green Elementary School. I was saddened to learn of Gilbert's passing. We have fond memories of the good old days when we were kids running around the playground and goofing off in the classes. May all your great times together provide comfort.

Kind regards and condolences,

Karen Louie

It was a month ago today, that God has taken you away. It seems like it was just yesterday.

Your daughter Marya Marie turned 21 today. She grows more and more like you each day.

Please bring back her smile today and let her know that everything will be okay.

I would like to "THANK YOU" for giving me a Beautiful Daughter, that reminds me of you each day!!!

Been thinking of you my dear son, the missing you is getting hard to bare. Remember when you never liked to talk about death, and hated me to even mention it. I just don't think it should have been you first. I will never forget you my Little son . Love you forever MOM

I may not be a familiar name to all of you who knew and loved Gil. I am Tony Andrade's daughter and I knew Gil pretty well. He always made me laugh and smile. Everyone in our neighborhood knew when Gil was at our house because you could hear him a block away yelling from his truck in the middle of the street TEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!! That is what he called my dad, and my dad would yell back from the house GEEEEEEEEEE!!!! If anyone I have ever known was a TRUE friend it was Gil. To Rosie and the family I can't even say in words how sorry I am about this. Just remember that everything happens for a reason. To Gil: you will always be in my heart and never forgotten. I love you!

Dear Virginia, Marya & Family

Life's path, yet a lonely one, shared with others, will meet one day soon. For we grow together as the floral ground cover, receives his suns warmth; it allows all creations to grow as one, no regrets, sorrows, for the only path leads to him our father. We grow in his light of joy that we follow his path, we will all meet again and rejoyce, for our memories are as one, cherished and not forgotten. Keep your memories close, near to your hearts as we walk this path together. You're all in my prayers. With Love, Denise
