The family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to David for the extraordinary care he gave to Rose. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the John A. Moran Eye Center.

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free, I’m following the path God laid for me
I found the peace I’ve searched for so long and now is filled with joy and song
Don’g lengthen it now with undue grief, lift up your hearts and share with me
God wanted me now he set me free.

Condolences for Rose Mary Gabaldron Giron

Our loved ones do not disappear - they simply continue in their eternal life. We do not see where they are, but their spiritual eyes, filled with the light of heaven, wait for the day when we shall share their perfect joy. In reality, death has given them life! We shed tears of longing, tears of homesickness, but it is we who are away from home, not they! For us who believe, passing through death is really a birth into a new and better life. Those who are left behind should not grieve as if there were no hope. Life is changed, not taken away. Our dear ones live on and with Jesus, they await the day when they will welcome us with joy. "Do not grieve so much," they say to us, "we are living and waiting until you come home." I miss you mom!

We all Loved you very much and are all going to miss you. You were stronger then you thought, you raised all eight of us, mostly by yourself and did a great job. You ran the household, the business', took care of our dad during his illness' and worked. You were an amazing mother. May you now rest in peace with your mother and father and brothers. Just know that we are going to miss you so much, but know you are in the hands of God with no limitations. We love you!
