    Dear children of Gilbert & Nancy,

    I am so sorry for your loss.
    Your parents & I were neighbors on Baxter street years ago, when you all were small. Nancy made the best tortillas ever, & we continued our friendship over the years, and I cared for her at GVNC.
    Gilbert was a very kind & hardworking man.

    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
    May God Bless and keep you in his care.
