Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory Serena and Joe Gomez who were unexpectedly and tragically taken from us on February 5, 2006. This site will allow family and friends to share stories, feelings, memories, and pictures of the Gomez family.  They leave behind three beautiful children, family, and friends. 

Trust Fund For Gomez Children has been fulfilled.  Thank you for all of your donations and to Grand Bank and Trust.

Trust Fund for Justin Gomez
Established By Friends of Serena at the City of Tavares
: Please join us in remembering Serena Gomez by giving generously to a Florida College Investment Fund established for her son, Justin.  Please send donations in any amount to:

Florida College Investment Plan
Post Office Box 31483
Tampa, FL  33631-3483

Please be sure to designate Justin B. Gomez as the account beneficiary, and include account number 5128013 on your check or money order. Contributions to Justin's fund are being accepted by the Plan at this time, and opportunities to contribute will continue until Justin reaches age 18.

Thank you very much for your generosity and support.

Submit Stories, Pictures, etc.: If you wish to add anything on this page, submit pictures, and/or music please email.

Please Note: We wanted to create a memorial site for Serena and Joe together but there was not  an option available and that is why it says "her" and "1976".

For those I love and for those who love me.

When I am gone, release me, let me go.
I have so many things to see and do,
You musn't tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.

I gave you my love, you can only guess
how much you gave me in happiness.

I thank you for the love you each have shown,
but now it's time to travel alone.

So grieve a while for me, if grieve you must,
then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It's only for a while that we must part, so
bless the memories that lie within your heart.

I won't be far away, for life goes on,
but if you need me, call me and I will come...
though you can't see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear
all of my love around you soft and clear...
and then when you must come this way alone...
I'll greet you with a smile and say "Welcome Home."
