I have many wonderful memories of Rosa, I miss her kisses on my hand each day,... we were always happy to see each other. One funny memory I have was when the state was in doing our annual survey and the woman was following me around making sure I was doing my job correctly and Rosa said something to me in Spanish so I got a cna to translate for me and she said in front of the surveyor, “ Rosa says your hair looks crazy today” 🤣😂 we all laughed! Rosa had the most loving family and was always so well cared for. It was such an honor to get to know Rosa and to care for her and I will miss seeing Claudia and her family visiting TUH. Please accept my warmest condolences to your family. I will always remember Rosa ♥️😘

Rosita, era hermosa en su manera de ser. Sensilla pero con un valor que siempre se veía des de el cielo. Siempre nos hacía sentir bienvenidos y extrañados. Las manitos eran tan suaves cuando me cogía la mano. Me encantaba visitarla con mi papá, mi mamá y mi hermana. Y nos dejaba jugar en el corredor del edificio y nunca se molestaba. Me alegro cuando pienso en ella. Espero, que si es la voluntad de Jehová nos veremos pronto en el paraíso que nos promete Dios, toda jovencita como estas fotos bellas. Salmo 37:11

Palabras del servicio de Rosita: Cada persona quien fue bendecida con la oportunidad de participar en la vida de Rosita fue convertida en una persona mejor. Rosita tocó la vida de cada miembro de nuestra familia y nos demostró como vivir una vida llena de fe, amor, paciencia, generosidad, y más de todo, servicio a otros. La capacidad de demostrar su amor por cada uno de nosotros con gestos grandes o pequeños no tuvo límites. A los que necesitaban ayuda de cualquier forma, ella les dio la mano. Siempre estuvo presente con un abrazo o una palabra cariñosa cuando más se necesitaba. Ella vivió una vida cristiana en la manera de Jesucristo. Hasta su niñez Rosita apoyó a sus padres. A sus hermanos y hermanas, su amor fue incondicional. Por sus sobrinos y sobrinos nietos, se preocupó como una mamá por nuestro bienestar. Ella tuvo un impacto en generaciones de nuestra familia. Este legado refleja su espíritu. Mi propia abuela, Claudia, pasó mucho tiempo cuidando a Rosita en sus años avanzados pero eso fue una recompensa pequeña para todo lo que hizo Rosita durante su vida y fue un acto de amor. Rosita tomó gran placer, alegría y orgullo en nuestros éxitos y en cada paso de nuestras vidas nos motivó a tomar riesgos para llegar a nuestras aspiraciones. Si ella podía ayudarnos a alcanzar nuestros metas, hizo todo lo posible. En los años que vienen, cuando pensemos en Rosita y cuando recordemos su imagen, vamos a ver su dulzura, nobleza, y la manera con que su sonrisa emitió alegría en la forma más pura. Y para los que conocieron bien a ella, vamos a pensar en su sentido de humor y su uso de expresiones y frases chistosas – y a veces locas – que eran una marca de su personalidad divertida. Hoy nos unimos para honorar a Rosita y celebrar su vida. Pero cuando salgamos de esta iglesia y volvamos a nuestras vidas diarias, la mejor manera de honorar a ella es sostener los valores que definieron su vida – trabaje duro cada día y tome cada oportunidad que Dios le presenta, esfuérzate a lograr sus metas pero siempre sea humilde, sea generoso con su amor, su tiempo, y sus recursos, y nunca olvide la importancia de un poquito de humor en los tiempos más difíciles. Rosita, esperamos que usted haya sentido todo el amor y agradecimiento de su familia durante su tiempo con nosotros en la tierra. Sabemos con seguridad que su recompensa verdadera te espera con Dios en el cielo. Descanse en paz.

Today our family remembers and honors Rosita. Rosita’s legacy is one of generosity, humility, and compassion. In her kindness and her selflessness, she lived with faith and steadily followed in the path of Christ. Throughout her life she asked for little but gave much. Though Rosita did not have children of her own, she acted as a surrogate mother to many of us here today. Over the course of her life she helped to care for generations of Gamba children and relatives, including her mother, Susana, in the final years of her life. So many of us have fond memories of times that she played with us, tended to us, and indulged us with sweet carrot juice and savory arepitas. Whether in Colombia, Massachusetts, California or Texas, she was a pillar of support for all of our families throughout the stages of our lives. When I was young she would travel to Medfield to watch over my sisters and me. Even all these years later, she always referred to my sister Dana as “my baby”. She was a true matriarch of the Gamba family and we are eternally grateful for her love and care. Our family is also indebted to Rosita for the many sacrifices that she made for us throughout her life, without conditions or expectations. It was in large part because of her efforts, sponsorship, and funding that so many of her siblings, nieces and nephews, were able to immigrate to this country. She went so far as to collect soda cans to raise money for the family. Needless to say, many of us including myself would not be here today were it not for those efforts. Our families have blossomed and thrived as a result of the seeds she helped to plant so many years ago. Rosita had a giving and selfless spirit, but in her dedication to our family she also demonstrated courage and purpose. Like her mother and siblings, she had a vision for this family, full of hope and promise. It is impressive to reflect on how far our family has come over the course of Rosita’s lifetime. In the pursuit of a better life her mother Susana moved the family from the farmlands of Colombia to the small city of Armero to become small business owners. Eventually the family moved again to find opportunity in Bogota, and finally onto the United States in the 1960s and 70s. Today our family spans across this country, as well as South America and Europe. The progress we have achieved as a family was paid for with years of perseverance and determination. The vision for a better life with more opportunities did not end with simply being in the United States. In the subsequent decades Rosita was an active citizen, always working, voting and embracing education for herself and for her family. I remember that she would borrow my chapter books to read when I was young. Even though English was her second language and she was retired by then, she continued reading into the later years of her life. The opportunity for us to create better lives for ourselves through education is something that she never took for granted. With this in mind, I think we would all agree that our successes and triumphs are also hers. Our family will miss Rosita dearly, but we will always remember her for her kindness, love and unselfish dedication to this family. We will be forever thankful to her for the many contributions she made to us over the course of her life. She cherished each of us as dearly as we cherished her. By her example we can learn what it means to lead a Christian life with a lifelong commitment to God.
