We would like to express our deepest sympathies to family and friends. Fr. Gilbert will be remembered as a softspoken, kindhearted and loving priest who served his people faithfully and joyfully. I know that when our son heard of his passing he said, “But, I loved Fr. Gilbert… he always encouraged me and he gave me the confidence to serve mass.” Indeed, he will be greatly missed! May he rest in peace.

My deepest sympathy and condolences to our Father Gilbert. He was a very special soulful joyous man who restored my faith in The Lord. He had the brightest smile that lite up the church and he was always making jokes with all of us after mass. He is sitting at the right hand of the creator and that’s what gives me comfort in this very tragic time. My condolences to his family and may god bless and strengthen you in this very hard time. With love from us here in the Whitford home 🙏💙🙏

Relation: parishoner when visiting St. Paul

It is with a heavy heart that I send this. I am originally from the area and do attend mass when visiting my family. Even though I did not know him personally, I have heard him speak in previous masses and from what everyone is saying about him he was a remarkable priest and healer to all the lives he touched. May he rest in peace now and be forever joyous with the lovingly heavenly father. We will miss you Father Gilbert.

We are very saddened in Oregon, USA, to hear of the death of this good priest. In the Diocese of Baker we are served by several SMMM priests and have heard of the kindness of Fr. Dasna. May the soul of this holy priest, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
