There are so many memories I can share, but some of my favorite with Gabriel were our talks when I would pick him up from kindergarten to take him to the sitters. During that 5 minute drive he would tell me how his day was and what he learned or did at school. He was always so happy and never went a day without smiling. I know my boys will miss going over and riding on his wheelchair. That was their favorite. Gabriel had a heart of gold. There are no words that can describe my heartbreak. I will miss him so much!

My sincerest condolences to Gabriel’s family. I had the pleasure of substitute teaching many classes that Gabriel was in during his time at Santa Paula High School. He was a bright spirit, someone that had the ability to pull you out of even your worst of moods. I’ll never forget how loud it got when his name was announced at his high school graduation. It was a testament to how well he was liked by everyone that knew him, from the students, to the faculty, to the people in the audience. My heart aches for all those who were close to him, especially his family, friends, and Ms. G.
May he rest in paradise.

To Gabriel's Family and Friends.First off my deepest condolences. I had the pleasure of meeting Gabriel when he got to high school.It truly was an honor .Why ? I'll tell you why .Each and everyday I ran into this guy he always greeted me with a smile.No bad days for this guy and if there were he never showed it.He was so uplifting.I am no computer whiz so when I shared a computer class with Gabe and Ms.G they were who I went to for help. I am positive that not one day went by they didn't help me.Gabe really had a heart of gold,he let me ride the elevator when we had class next to each other(I think he felt sorry that I would huff and puff 3 flights of stairs to class)🤔 There are so many things I learned from Gabe that I will forever be grateful ,the most being that there really is no limit to anything.Ive always known this but with Gabe it gave more meaning.My heart aches along with his family,friends and all who knew him but I know that the memories of Gabriel ,his shining smile ,his laughter,will give us strength during this most difficult time.God hold you close Gabe and God bless all of you.

My deepest condolences to (Joanna, Robert, Cynthia, Kayla and all the extended family). Gabriel was an amazing person and left us all with some great memories. From racing up and down the block in his wheelchair just to come hang out in the garage with all of us, to playing tag with the kids from his wheelchair. He never let anything get him down. He will be forever missed. RIP my little neighbor.
Luv ya!!! 💕🙏🏻💕
