We were saddened to hear of Gilbert’s passing on Thanksgiving Day. When we heard of his passing I thought to myself what could we possibly give thanks for today? But we are thankful for knowing Gilbert and that he was part of our lives. Even though we only knew him for a short time, he became like part of our family. We love him and we will all miss him. I know how much he loves his grandmother and family, and I can only imagine what you must be feeling at this time. I am so glad that he and Marisela met, they complimented each other very well, liking sports, dancing, going out with friends and just hanging out. Gilbert we know you are now in heaven with our Heavenly Father and your mom. May we all take comfort in that. God Bless You and May You Rest In Peace!!!
