"The best & most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even heard, but must be felt with the heart."
You would have lived forever...
Federico Montez Gonzales Jr. "Freddie" crossed over and became truly free on
December 5th, 2017.
He was born in Brownsville Texas on December 22, 1967 to his parents that he is survived by, Fred Gonzales Sr. & Guadalupe Montez Bedford.
Although his life had more than his fair share of difficulties, he touched everyone he met with his charisma, charm and his amazing smile.
Freddie felt blessed to be loved by his family and friends and to live in this amazing place.
In memory of Freddie, live as he did-
Appreciate the overwhelming wonder and beauty of nature. When you see a homeless person, give them money. When you see an animal, pet it. When you see something beautiful, slow down and take a picture of it. When you see someone who is sad, stop and talk to them. When you have a chance to make a child happy, do it. When you see a flower, smell it. When there's work to be done, do it. When you see pretty things, appreciate them. Wake up every day singing. When there's a hamburger, eat it. Watch Rudolph the Red nosed Reindeer every year. When you hear music, sing and dance to it. Be happy. Appreciate people, thank them. Be patient with people. If someone is lonely, be there for them. Remember people's birthdays. Show people how much you love them. When people need help, give it to them. Make people feel special, listen, and engage them. Meet people wherever they are on their journeys. Always follow your heart.
Smile, smile, and smile again.
And if you see a helicopter, well...
He is survived by his devoted wife Aliya whom he deeply loved, his step-son Zane who he loved like a brother and his mother-in-law Stephanie who he was a committed, loving caregiver to.
He has a large extended family and many friends who will forever hold a special place in his heart.
He was loved by many and will be remembered by all.
Watch for him in the sunsets and the butterflies, he'll be with us in one form or another, I promise you that.
When I die
Give what’s left of me away
And old men that wait to die.
And if you need to cry,
Cry for your brother
Walking the street beside you
And when you need me,
Put your arms
And give to them
What you need to give to me.
I want to leave you something,
Look for me
In the people I’ve known
And if you cannot give me away,
At least let me live in your eyes
And not on your mind.
You can love me most
Hands touch hands
Bodies touch bodies
Love doesn’t die,
So, when all that’s left of me
Give me away..
Alone, I grieve
Quietly, I cry
Alone, I walk
Quietly, I remember
Alone, I wish
Quietly, I endure
Alone, I'll never forget you
Quietly, I Love You..
~Aliya to My Freddie
May the radiance and beauty of their lives never be defined by their death..
"Our goodness is what survives death, and so we cultivate that goodness in ourselves as well as nurture and celebrate the goodness of others around us, continuing to do so when they have passed."
My Love for you will Never cease. You are my missing piece...
It's being without him that I will Never get used to.
..and sometimes, just sometimes, when people say Forever, they mean it...
IN PEACE GO HOME
Through veils of peace may you ascend
To promised planes above
Where comfort shall await you
In those summerlands of love
Although by grief is deep and raw
Although my pain is great
I know that you are still with me
I know that you will wait
For in God's time we'll meet again
Of this I am quite sure
I loved you so much on this earth
In absence even more...
We talk about them, not because we're stuck or because we haven't moved on, but because we are theirs and they are ours; no passage of time will ever change that.
He sings a song of hope and cheer,
There's no more pain, no more fear.
You'll see him in the clouds above,
Hear him whisper words of Love,
You'll be together before long,
Until then, listen for his song..
Federico Montez Gonzales Jr.
