To Gabriely's Family,
He was a good friend I had the pleasure of meeting and working with, when he first started at the city as a co-op. Over the years we kept in touch and it was always nice to run into him and visit. May he Rest In Peace.

It is difficult to have Gabe leave all his family and friends on earth, but his faith in God helped me find the same. He was not only a good person he was always a friend to many. May the Holy Spirit wrap his arms around your family each every day. (Former City Councillor, Dolores Connor)

Our heartfelt condolences go out to Minerva and all the family. Gabe was a kind and wonderful person. One of my lasting memories of him was when we were all in college, he would pull up to the apartment complex on his payday and walk up to the neighborhood kids with a bag of little toys and “surprises” for them. I’m not sure whose smiles were bigger that day the kids or Gabe’s! May God Bless you and comfort you during this difficult time.

It was a very sad day when I heard that my friend stepped into eternity. Separation leaves big holes in our heart when we experience it. The one thing I do know is my friend Gabe is in the presence of his Father. One day I to will step into eternity and enter into the presence of my Father and will be able to once again praise the Lord with my friend. You will be missed my friend. Rest In Peace. Minerva, Gabriela, Nick, Lawrence, Olga, may the mighty Comforter the Holy Spirit comfort you during this time. Our prayer are for your comfort and peace. God bless you all.
