May he rest in peace.

My prayers are especially for the small children and family.

As always Meeghan, you know that I am here for you and the boys. Despite the pain and confusion that Gustavo was suffering from and hiding from most, he was a good man who was always willing to help everyone. If it weren't for him, you and I would not have become such great friends. I wished I could have done more before it came to this.
He will be missed by so many.

I heard Friday afternoon and spent all weekend hoping and praying that this wasnt true and trying not to think about it but everything I did made me think more about it and remember several great times with Gustavo. You will be missed and my thoughts and prayers are with Meeghan and the boys and the rest of the family.

I received the horrible news Friday morning, I was so saddened by the news and i could not believe what i was hearing. I can honestly say that Gustavo was a very good person and always wanted to help everyone. Gustavo and I built and un built my Rubicon several times at his house and it was always a good time with him. Even after i sold my Jeep Gus and I kept in touch and the relationship never changed, it was as if we would see each other everyday... that is when you know you have a true friend. The last time i saw Gus me and several other members went 4 wheeling and had a blast, I am glad I can remember that last time we shared as a great one. May he Rest in Peace.

My condolences go to Meeghan and the boys, we all know how much he loved his family.

God Bless

We Love You Brother!

I don't come on here very often so I just heard about this from Sergio on Saturday. I was shocked and I had to clarify that the guy I knew during my time with the SFJC was the same guy. The last time I saw him was the Christmas Party at his house in 2008. He and Meeghan seemed happy, his kids were great and he was very proud of his business so it seemed so shocking to me to hear this news. So sorry for everyone who this touches.
