Celebrating the life of Gabriel Justin Roldan
Thank you for signing Gabriel Justin Roldan's Guestbook
My dear little brother from another mother, why did you have to leave us so soon?
It was just last week you were asking your niece & nephew what they were going to dress up as for Halloween, and we were making plans for that night. Of course your idea was to dress up as a goblin wearing stilts. I laughed and said, " Stilts!! Are you crazy; you are going to fall down walking on those things." You said, "Nope, I've walked on them before a long distance at a Veteran's Day parade." That was the person you were a BIG kid at heart, fun loving, adventurous, wild spirited, compassionate, sensitive, and the military Hero of the family. That is how I am going to remember you always & forever. It makes me so sad to know that there were still so many plans and memories for us to share. You were the uncle who was supposed to take the kids fishing, and camping, motor cycle riding, and hunting. At family gatherings who will be the one I can be silly with and joke around with? Now that you are in the arms of the Lord, I know you are an angel now watching over all of us, your little daughter, and all your nieces & nephews. Life is too short. I realize this, and so many other things now more than ever. If I had to do it all over again, I would still pick you to be my brother-in-law, or rather, my brother from another mother! Love you & miss you so much already. Your sister-in-law, Amy
