Skip to comments.[Personal] Young Marine Widower needs our support...
Posted on 01/14/2014 4:04:12 AM PST by huldah1776
"It is with a heavy heart that I come to you all asking for assistance. The Warfighter community received a message yesterday that could not go unnoticed.
A young spouse of one of our Brothers passed away at the young age of 24. They have transported her back to Maryland for her viewing and funeral. They do not have any close family and there will be little to no emotional support for the Soldier in his darkest hour. I ask that if you are in the Lansdowne Maryland area or know anyone around there please go show your support and be there for our Brother. Her viewing is this Wed 3 to 5, then 7 to 9. with services Thursday morning at Ambrose Funeral Home of Lansdowne. 2719 Hammonds Ferry Rd, Lansdowne Md 21227 I am also asking you all as the Warfighter community to reach out and show the support for this Soldier in his time of need. Please use this thread as the Guest Book and leave your comments and tokens of support. Let him know that he is not alone in his time of need."
I pray many will respond who are close by and support this grieving warrior.
share name please
How very sad to hear this. I will be praying for this family, and if I were closer, I would pay my respects in person.
May the Good Lord bless and keep this young lady’s family, and grant them the strength to endure.
May He watch over this soldier, and keep him safe from harm.
In Jesus name.
I’m praying for you in this dark hour. May God speed your wife to his loving embrace and comfort you in your time of need.
Maryland ping please!
Sorry I don’t know my geography but can some folks from the DC Chapter consider this request? Or contact some VFW/Legions in the area? Thanks for looking into it!
From the Funeral Home web page (looks like a nice family-owned funeral home):
Tiffany Nicole Bise-Valverde
06-05-1989 - 01-07-2014
On January 7, 2014 TIFFANY BISE-VALVERDE passed away. She was the beloved wife of Gabrial Valverde. She was the loving daughter of Timothy Bise & Sharon Koethe. Tiffany is also survived by many other loving family members & friends.
Relatives & Friends may call our LANSDOWNE location on Wednesday between 3:00-5:00pm and 7:00-9:00PM where a public visitation will be held. A funeral service will follow on Thursday. Interment will be Private.
See post 10.
This is just a little south of Baltimore proper.
Nearby, maybe could make late viewing. Can’t do afternoon have to take 5yo son to 2nd dentist appt. Cringe.
Much closer to Baltimore.
Thank you for posting this. I shared before rushing to work this morning.
RIP. Prayers for her widower and family.
So sorry, I first read about him on a Marine Mom site and corrected it in the text but forgot about my header. No offense intended and I know how sensitive Marines are about being called soldiers. I lost my soldier brother in Vietnam, my second brother was on a sub for 6 years, my younger brother was in the Air Force, and my son is a Marine, so I know about the sibling banter. All sons of the United States and all shed tears.
I’ll ask Admin to change.
No offense intended....
None taken. I only posted as an item of interest.
DC chapter ping! Thank you, P... you are a sweetheart.

Sorry about late notice but just now getting some involved.
Hope some of you can make it or can contact Rolling Thunder and Patriot Guard Riders.
Prayers for the family
This is in the Baltimore/Towson area, I think?
Just southeast of Baltimore.
Poor guy. Did anyone make it?
Don’t know if anyone made it. Balto might we well be on the far side of the moon for me. Can’t imagine losing his wife so young.
Notre Père qui es aux cieux,
Que ton Nom soit sanctifié, que ton règne vienne,
Que ta volonté soit faite sur la terre comme au ciel.
Donne-nous aujourd'hui notre pain de ce jour.
Pardonne-nous nos offenses, comme nous pardonnons aussi à ceux qui nous ont offensés.
Et ne nous soumets pas à la tentation, mais délivre-nous du mal.
Car cest à Toi quappartiennent le règne, la puissance et la gloire,
pour les siècles des siècles. Amen
Je vous salue, Marie, pleine de grâces,
le Seigneur est avec vous, vous êtes bénie entre toutes les femmes,
et Jésus le fruit de vos entrailles est béni.
Sainte Marie, Mère de Dieu, priez pour nous pauvres pécheurs,
maintenant, et à l'heure de notre mort. Ainsi-soit-il.
Garde la Foi, mes amis! Nous nous sommes les sauveurs de la République! Maintenant et Toujours!
(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)

Yes, it aired on the news and showed several hundred military and civilians came forward to create a family for Gabrial and his beloved Tiffany. I will post the link in a comment below.....babydoll1013
If I’m posting this incorrectly, I apologize- it is meant fir all readers/posters to see; the link for the story being covered by the local news channel, several hundreds turned out in Gabrial’s time of loss....
A poem to help in times of suffering-
Memories In The Heart
Memories In The Heart - Unknown
Feel no guilt in laughter, she knows how much you care
Feel no sorrow in a smile that she’s not here to share
You cannot grieve forever, she would not want you to
She’d hope that you can carry on, the way you always do
So talk about the good times and the ways you showed you cared
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared
Let memories surround you.
A word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day
That brings her back as clearly as though she were still here
And fills you with the feelings that she is always near
For if you keep these moments, you will never be apart
And she will live forever locked safe within your heart
That is just lovely. Thank you for the update, Babydoll!
