My dear cousins,
So sorry to hear about Cousin Gilbert passing, he is now enjoying his new life with our LORD and the rest of the Acebedo and Monge families.
But yes, we do have the memories of him. His cousin Fred, Lucy and the rest of the family meeting up with Gilbert, Violet, and Ora at the Banning High School football games and sometimes at our favorite pizza place (Dominick’s}, are two of my fond memories and hearing them talking about the old times?
My prayers and thoughts are with you and the LORD gives you strength through this difficult time.

My dearest Violet, Cindy, and Cissy. My heart is heavy with sadness. Gilbert was a wonderful neighbor and kept us in giggles when we were young. He would often visit my parents to make sure they were ok. When I was in school he sometimes would let me stay after school with him and you Violet till mom came home. I often think of your family. May Gilbert be at peace. I have put him in my prayers at the shrine of our Lady.
