Dear Hannah and Little Gabe,

For the short time I knew Gabe, he made the biggest impact on mine and Eric's life. Everyday when he came home from work, he would mention him. And even though I wasn't that close to him, I felt like I was because of all the great stories Eric would tell me every single day. He was such a good rolemodel to Eric and all of the guys. I wanted Eric to look up to him, and he did. I can't remember how many times I told him, "Be more like Gabe.." or "What would Gabe do in this situation?.." He really impacted our lives more than you will ever know, and I know you will raise Little Gabe to be just like him. I am truely sorry for your loss. He was one of the greatest men I have ever known, and I think of all of you every single day.
We will never forget his or your sacrifice. We love you Gabe, and we will miss you until we see you again.

My dearest daughter Hannah and little granson Gabriel. I have been thinking about what I would like to put here and the Lord made it clear while fixing your fence two weeks ago. I had promised Gabe to help keep your house up and watch out for you before he left. While in Gabe's little work shed getting some tools I noticed a black coffee cup in the corner with words on it "Real Men are Godly." He had purchased that cup at church last year during our special Men's Discipleship study. Gabe exemplified that theme. He was a real man but godly also. He was a soldier's soldier who kept in shape but also a loving and caring husband and selfless person. That is a rare combination. It was a privilege to have had him in our discipleship group and see him grow. I pray some day little Gabe will be encouraged to follow in his father's footsteps and be a real and godly man too. I know God has given you unusual strength to guide him. He is blessed with a wonderful example in both of you. Love you. Dad.

It was a great privilege to have him for a son-in-law and prayer partner. I have no regrets.

Dear Hannah and little Gabe and the DeRoo and Suko families,

I'm a friend of Amelia Rogers and she asked that we pray for you and your family and what you have experienced. May God wrap His arms around you, Hannah and your little Gabe and keep you in His care. I pray that God would give you peace and comfort in your hearts and that you would experience God in a deeper way. Phil. 4:7, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

The memory of Gabe has made us better people, stronger Christians and prouder Americans. You never realize how much you miss someone or how much of an effect they have on you until they are gone. Gabe was that person, that soldier, that friend, that brother, that husband, that father and most of all that man of God. May Gabe's legacy live on in all our hearts.

Dear Hannah and little Gabriel, we pray now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.

I am so thankful that I was alble to meet Gabe and spend some time with you two. I know that he was your hero even before he left this earth. I love you and I pray that as you go throughout your days you will continue to look up and know that through all this our Lord has a bigger plan that we are unable to see. You are a strong woman and shown and taught me so much while I watch you go through this loss! I will continue to pray for you and little Gabriel and I look forward to seeing you:) Love Katie ~ Romans 5:1-5

We did not have the chance to meet Gabe, but we know you and your dear family and know that he must have been the finest of young men to win your heart. His bravery as a soldier and defender of our freedoms, his faith and Christian witness, his devotion to you and your son are the qualities we hope to instill in our own sons. It was an honor for us to talk to our boys about Gabe and to hold him up as an example of what it means to be a man. We are holding you, your beautiful son, and loving family close to our hearts in prayer. May the love of Jesus, the fellowship and comfort of his followers and the prayers of all who love and pray for you bring you comfort.
