Hannah & little Gabe,

Wow! I didn't remember that you and Gabriel's wedding was exactly 2 years after ours! I didn't think anyone else would be as crazy as us to schedule a wedding on such an already busy day!

WE haven't even had any kids yet (after almost 4 years together), but I think just maybe God blessed you so soon with such a bundle of joy - and with his father's name - knowing that he would always remind you forever of his father's love.

You are definitely in our prayers, and even more so now that we have one more thing in common - our anniversary. We never met Gabe, but I'm sure he was a blessing to all. May God drench you with His love and comfort in the days and years to come ... and may little Gabe be a reflection of his earthly - and hopefully of his future HEAVENLY FATHER. May he come to know and walk in his father's footsteps, always following the Father's ways and shining HIS light to all through him! May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord's face shine upon you ... and give you peace ... FOREVER!

Dear Hannah and Family,

My heart and prayers go out to you and the rest of the family. I did not have the pleasure of meeting your husband or you. I have only heard great things about your husband through my own husband and others.

Dear Hannah and the family who loved and treasured Gabe!
Please, accept our deepest sympathy on Gabe’s death. This terrible news rang with great pain in our hearts. We are constantly praying that God would comfort you and strengthen you in the faith, that you would not doubt even for a moment in His mercy and grace. Today all our church was praying for you with many tears. Gabe remains in our memory as a very kind, attentive, smiling young man, always surrounded with children. We are praying that all of us would be open to hear what God wants to tell us through the loss of such a wonderful person and a Christian.
The day when Gabe left us has become his birthday into a new and everlasting life. He is not a pilgrim anymore, but he is in his Homeland, where there are no sorrows. He sees now in Whom we should believe and he is surrounded with what we should await.
We are with you in our prayers.
With love – Vladimir, Maria and Serj Sagadeyev

Dear Hannah & family,

We were blessed recently by the testimony of Caleb Suko & family at our church, & our church supports them, which is how we have come to know of the loss of Gabriel. We have been praying for your healing & comfort, & are rejoicing & praising God that he knew Jesus as Saviour, & that his death was not in vain. We pray that God will continue to be your strength, comfort & very present help in time of need. I can understand the real concern that you live with on a day to day basis when a loved one is in the military, defending our freedom. My brother & his wife are both in the Navy. I also want you to know that we pray on a regular basis for the safety of all our troops in harm's way, & we are so proud of the best military in the world. We applaud your family for having such a true hero, not just in what he did so unselfishly for our country, but also that he was uncompromising in his testimony before an unsaved world. May Jesus Christ continue to be praised in the days & weeks ahead, & may He uphold & sustain you. May you know the height, the depth, the richness & the fulness of the love of our Almighty God, who knows with us what it is like to give the very most precious gift we have to give. How WONDERFUL to know that we love & serve a God who KNOWS our pain, & how awesome to know that we WILL see our loved ones again, & in Christ, everything will be complete. Love in Christ,
The Lorenz Family--Levi, Colleen, Aidan & Lydia Lorenz

Dear Hannah and little Gabe,
My husband and I are grieving tremendously for your loss. Gabe and my husband Jim were close friends for a good portion of their young teen years. Both the Sonntag family (Gregg and Gretchen, Pete, Joe, and Jim) and the DeRoo Family attended Lawton Evangelical Mennonite Church and became great friends through the church activities and through home schooling. The whole family expresses their deepest sympathies. Jim is personally feeling this loss down deep in his soul, for he saw Gabe as one of his closest friends even though they lost touch in the past several years. Gabe was a great man and a true inspiration to Jim, even now. Remember that Gabe is always watching over you, just look into your sons eyes and he will be there. May God stand with you and little Gabe through all of your hardships and pain. We will be keeping you and the DeRoo family in our prayers. May God Bless You.
With Great Love In Jesus Christ Our Savior,
Jim and Amanda Sonntag

Hannah ~

Though we don't know you personally, numerous special people in our lives do. We have heard many wonderful things about Gabe and your family that makes us feel we have a connnection with you. Of course, we can't help but feel tremendous grief over what you and your family have lost . . . yet encouraged with the reminder of what a temporal life this is and what awaits those who have placed their trust in Jesus Christ. What a blessing it has been to repeatedly hear our Lord Jesus proclaimed through this most difficult circumstance.

As a member of the Body of Christ, it is our privilege to commit ourselves to praying daily for you and your son. We truly believe in the power of prayer.

Most Sincerely ~ & With Christ's Love,

Dear Deroo Family,
I am praying for you, and I praise the Lord that you raised such a fine man of God who brought my friend Hannah so much happiness. The Lord will reward you for teaching your children to follow Him. To you girls, I know it is heart wrenching that your Gabriel is not with you at this moment. I can't imagine what pain you must be felling to loose such a sweet brother! I know he's not here in the flesh to be there for you, but he's not gone forever. He is still with you in spirit and in the memories you shared. You will see his smiling face again when he runs up to you at the gates of heaven and says "Hey girls! What took you so long?" You too, Mr. and Mrs. Deroo will be welcomed with a open arms by your angel Gabriel. Keep hoping, keep praying and know that the Lord is always right by your side. May God give you joy and strength in these times of trial. Love, Hannah Yefimov

Dearest Hannah, Baby Gabe, and family, Our hearts were saddened when we heard the news of your great loss. While we know our loss is Heaven's gain, we know that Gabe's absence here on earth leaves a great void and your hearts feel that pain. Our hearts grieve with yours. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers and hearts. May God's grace sustain you day by day, and may His peace grant you rest each night, and may the comfort of His presence carry you now and always. "The eternal God is thy refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms." (Deuteronomy 33:29) Our hearts and arms reach out across the miles, wishing we could be there with you and your family during these days. With Love & Prayers for you, Curt & Karen DeGraaff

Dear Hannah, Gabriel II, Gabe's Family,Pastor Mark and Family,

We just read and seen the video clips of Gabe. I am pained to hear about the Gabe's departure while on duty line. The Lord called one of his dear ones home earlier than expected. We are grieved and saddend to not have him longer with his earthly family and friends but he enjoys today the company of a heavenly family. Just ahead of us! We are praying for the rest of the Family. Maranatha Baptist Bible College students and Faculty joins you, the family, to lift Hannah and Gariel II specially at this time of need. The Lord be your Comfort and Peace!
