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!

Dearest Hannah, Our church family wants you to know that we are holding you and your baby son up in prayer. Our hearts are broken that you must go through something so devastating at such a young age, but know that your faith will help sustain you. We have hosted
your brother Caleb and his family and your sister before her mission to Russia several times, so we feel very attached to your family. How proud we are of your wonderful husband - how God blessed you with such a Godly man! We are praying that many will come to know Christ as their Savior because of Gabe's example and the life he lead. Please know that we are praying for you daily and also please accept our thanks from a grateful church family for the sacrifices you and your families have made. God bless you now and in the future. Your brothers and sisters in Christ in Eatonville.
