Rosario Israel Gomez Funeral

Rosario Israel Gomez was a bright young boy. He was a child with autism, that was his uniqueness. His autism was what made him strong, what made him unique. He loved trains, he loved taking the subway and going on trips in the Metra. He could tell you every stop from his home all the way to whatever destination you had. He loved school and always looked forward to getting up and going. His family was addicted to his charming ways. He loved to help grandma with anything she needed, especially since she has trouble walking. He loved going everywhere with his grandfather. 

Unfortunately, on January 25th, 2017 he went to school and never returned. That tragic day his family got a phone call stating he had been in an accident at school. The family rushed to the hospital, only to find out that Israel, only 14, had drowned. His family is devastated by this tragic loss. Israel’s grandfather was admitted to the hospital because of how hard he took the news. We are all devastated and cannot understand how the place your child should feel safe...suddenly becomes the reason why he does not come home.
