Hey Grandpa one last salute one last message. Your spirit lives on and smile lingers in our hearts we lift those guns high and fire one last shot. Here’s to Fidel a strong happy brilliant man.
even though he has past it shouldn’t be sad cuz he succeeded in God’s mission the one that stole our hearts ♥️
Now rest and go home rejoice and prosper no more suffering no more pain
Just god and his warm comfort
We love you we’ll miss you
Baby Chris, Kariza Trinity Chasity


One quiet day the angels came
And took grandpa far away
But in the stillness of the night
I could almost hear him say.

“Dear grandchild, I will miss you
You mean so much to me
But Jesus called me to His side
In Heaven I will be.

A place of God’s great beauty
No tears or earthly cares
Only peace and joy forever
And love beyond compare.

So remember all the good times
Don’t think about the sad.
Treasure all the special moments
Through the years we’ve always had.

And if you trust in Jesus
I can promise this and more
You will get a hug from grandpa
Someday on Heaven’s golden shore.”

I will truly miss the smile, and the sense of humor that my Uncle Fidel always had. But that is not the only thing that he wore well. He also displayed the Love of Christ, and the peace of the Holy Spirit everywhere he went. The legacy that he has left here on earth is inspiring, and admirable, just as his father before him. His Faith, and the Love that he had for God will always be a comforting reassurance of his eternal rest to me. Until we meet in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ,....... Rest easy my dear Tio.
Sincerely Joey Gaitan & Family
