I am very sad to report the passing of Gerson Urgiles, who was a student in my class in the last year I taught at Middle College HS. His family is naturally devastated; our thoughts and prayers go out to them. They are in need of financial help.

 A GoFundMe page has been set up. Please donate.

It is with great sorrow in our hearts we sit here and write this.

On Wednesday November 11, 2020 at 9:30pm the Urgiles-Argudo family lost the most marvelous soul. In a tragic and fatal accident on the I-95 in Norwalk, CT,  our beloved Gerson Urgiles of just 18 years lost his life when the car he traveled in struck a tractor trailer. Gerson was traveling back home with his older brother Kelvin, 24, and younger brother Michael, 15.

Kelvin Urgiles, driver, sustained minor injuries and is thankfully recovering from his physical injuries. He has a fractured neck, broken wrist, dislocated finger required staples on his head and underwent 2 surgeries.

Michael Urgiles, front passenger, suffered minor injuries and is thankfully recovering from those physical injuries.

Gerson Urgiles, backseat passenger, impacted the windshield and was pronounced dead at the scene. Gerson was a loving and caring brother, cousin, friend, and a spectacular son. He loved photography, music, and fashion. The day before the fatal accident he went to take his high school graduation pictures which he was so excited for. He had his whole life ahead of him and an infinite amount of love left to give and receive.

Thank you,

The Urgiles Family

A special thank you to Omar Flores. May God continue to bless you and your loved ones.

When God calls our children
to dwell with Him above,
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with,
the death of one child.
Who does so much to make our world,
seem so wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to His fold.
So He picks a rosebud
before it can grow old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes but few.
To make the land of heaven
more beautiful to view.
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try.
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be Good-bye.
So when a child departs,
we who are left behind,
Must realize God loves children and
angels are hard to find

REST IN PEACE GERSON. You will forever be remembered as our ANGEL on earth, who has entered the Kingdom of Glory.
