Janet, my prayers go out to you and the entire Lopez family on the loss of Gilbert. I grew up with Gilbert from the time he moved to Midvale.

Janet and Lopez family,
I am so saddened by the loss of Gilbert, I still cannot believe it.
Christopher, your Dad shared memories of you with me. He loved you more than word can express.
Lindsey and Michael, he was very proud of your accomplishment and loved you both.
You all need to continue his legacy of compassion, generosity and service towards others.
I will miss his laughter and goofy personality, especially after having a little bit too much caffine OMG!.

I am so sorry to hear that Gilbert is no longer with us. We grew up in Midvale and had so many adventures at Midvale Jr and Hillcrest High. I am so thankful that I was able to find him and had the opportunity to talk for hours last summer. I had not talked to him for 50 years. We talked about growing up and all the crazy things we did and the people we knew. I think it made us feel young again. I am so sorry for your loss. Henry

Janet,
I am so sorry for your loss. I attended high school and graduated with Gilbert. He was a very nice person then. What a wonderful legacy he has left you and your family. God bless you at this difficult time. Rhea Smith

Janet, my love and prayers are with you and your family at this time of Heartache. Enjoy the memories and wonderful times you spent together, the great memories will keep you going. You are in my prayers, I'm sorry at this time I can't attend Gilbert's funeral. I think I'm a little afraid it being the week of Mikee's passing last year. If you need to talk I am always here. Love you, Terri Burdette
