Dear Gomez Family,

As an “RNDC Family” member, it hurts deep in my heart to know you are suffering such pain while trying to find peace at the same time. A task only the heartbroken can truly understand. When silence surrounds you, remember to lean on Love and Grace.

Having worked with Carlos for many years, I feel blessed to call him, friend. While my team was in one location, Carlos and his in another, let’s just say we had many daily calls to work out logistics be it the arrival of Customer Orders to any other number of challenges..….but no matter what we came up against, Carlos made sure laughter was always shared.

Thank you, Carlos, for reminding us all about the importance and joy in laughter! Rest in Peace my friend.

My condolences to the entire Gomez family...your Carlos will be missed.
I met Carlos and worked with him when he first started with RNDC in Houston. A purposeful young man who was a great guy to work with and a wonderful person to know. He utilized an insightful sense of humor and observations as a way to engage you in conversation. I was able to reconnect with Carlos when I eventually moved to the San Antonio area. In discussions with him it was clear to me how much he had grown into a family man. His comments depicted how much he loved his family and enjoyed his time spent with them.
While the loss is difficult I hope you can also smile at the thought of how much he truly loved you and how proud he was of his family.
You will be missed Carlos....Rest in Peace.

I was actually hired directly by Carlos at RNDC back in August 2007. He was the warehouse day shift manager at the time. I remember sitting down in front of him and the first thing he asked me was, "So tell me why I should hire you?" Lol. Needless to say he did and I worked for him since, learning as much as I could. He would challenge me constantly as I worked my way up to a manager and I'll always appreciate all he did for me. Rest easy Charlie, I'll always remember that Rockies game we went to watch when we were at RNDC in Denver training for WM! Hope to see you on the other side one day.

My deepest condolences to the family . . . I will always remember Carlos with the fondest of memories. We developed a friendship that didn't need daily nurturing. If I saw him only once every couple of weeks, it was as if we had just had lunch together and picked up where we left off. We could talk about anything; and often did. I'll always think about his unique personality, smile, joking nature and huge heart. He was salt of the earth and we will all miss him dearly! God Bless Carlos and his family . . .

Blessed are they who mourn, For they shall be comforted Mt 5:4

He was definitely a Cowboys fan and we could tell from the other side of the fence how they were doing with his celebrations of cheer. His neighborly greetings will be missed. He took great care in being a caring neighbor and always had a smile when we saw him working out in his yard or placing Halloween decorations. It was a small world as my mom and uncle both had the pleasure of working with him at the former Block Dist. and the now Republic. His presents will be greatly missed.

We hold the family up in prayer at this time and for years to come during those milestones that Carlos will be coveting from Heaven. Keith and I are here for you if you need us. The small things like mowing the lawn, bringing in the trash can or watching over the house when you are out of town.

With great neighborly love, Lisa & Keith Gladstone
