Rick and Gamez family, My family and I would like to offer our condolences. Your dad was one of the nicest and hardest working guys I had ever met. His talks about good work ethic and responsibility really stuck with me. May he rest in peace and your family find solace knowing that he touched so many lives. Jerry "Jumper" Gomez and family

It hurts me to know that you are gone Mr. Gamez. Althought I didnt know you for very long. It was a big part that I got to meet you when I went home this past Christmas. You accepted me like I was part of the family. We had good talks althought they were small. I will cherish them forever. Thank you for your service. I know you will be looking down on us from heaven and thank you for that. Love you and you'll always be remembered.
