Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
Se recordara siempre como un amigo respetuoso. Que en paz descanse.

My uncle was a kind, loving and humble man. He made those around him laughed all the time. Always had a beautiful smile on his face. I still cannot believe that he is no longer physically her. In my mind, I just see him smiling and that is how I will remember him. R.I.P. Tio

To the Family and friends of Galo, may you find a measure of comfort in the Bible's promise at Revelation 21:3,4. God promises a time when sickness and death will no longer exist, and a time when we will be reunited with the loved ones we have lost in death (John 5:28,29). As you reflect on the life and memories of Galo, may those fond memories override the sadness that accompanied his long illness. As you read the above scriptures, I pray they help you to cope during your most difficult moments. Deepest Regrets.
