"Remembering Mr. Dad Gibo on his 8th birthday with love!"
"To all the members of the Gibo Ohana:
May the loving smile of Seiyei Gibo bring sunshine and warmth to all your days.
It was our honor to know "Dad" a little bit. His smile and goodness were inspiring and will always stay with us...
Robie Lovinger and family"
"Mr. Gibo, your smile, sense of humor and laughter will always be remembered. Thank you for all the wonderful memories I got to share with you, whenever I hung out with Joy in both Okinawa and Hawaii.
I pray that you are at peace now and maybe enjoying a beer or two up in heaven with my dad and the other "Hawaii-Okinawa" boys at the Heavenly Bar.
Joy, Lisa and Mrs. Gibo - All of you took really good care of your dad & husband for so many years - gokurosama. Although he may be physically gone now, please remember that he will continue to live on in your hearts. I pray you find comfort and peace in the memories you all shared as a family. Please take care.
"Mr.Gibo, I will always remember you with your kind smile. Your home was filled with women (Baachan, Mrs. Gibo, Lisa and Joy). You were the quiet man, who protected and loved them.
Joy and Family, please find comfort that Mr. Gibo is always with you in your hearts.
With warmest aloha,
"Aunty Toshiko, Lisa and Joy,
We were so saddened to hear of Uncle Sei's passing, but feel he is now in a better place and resting peacefully. I'll always remember Uncle Sei's cheerful and happy disposition, always smiling and brightening up our gatherings. I'm sure he is looking down at us along with Gichan, Baban, Uncle Juni and Uncle Donald,.. and watching over us. You are all in our thoughts, hearts and prayers.
p.s. I loved looking at the old family pictures... so precious!"
"Mr. Gibo, I only met you a few times but we did speak on the phone a lot when you would call for Joy. You were always so nice and you have such a wonderful family. I know they miss you terribly.
To Joy, Lisa and Mrs Gibo, you are all in my thoughts.
Suzan Kanzic Akamine"
"Thank you, father for all you have done and for given us the greatest love of life and for teaching us the love for ALL humanity. The legacy will be known and carried on. See you in next life DAD. You will be MISSED. I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH.
Until we meet again.... Chibiko"
