We wish to send our deepest sympathies to your family at this time. Our prayers and thoughts will be with you. We will also pray for the safe return of Gabriel's fellow soldiers. May his life and death serve as a high example to all of us.

When I hear about a soldier dying my heart just falls. I have a son who was stationed in Fort Lewis and was in the Stryer and he left in 2003. He came home the following year but that year was the worst year of my life the not knowing,the crying I did along with my husband. Take Care

In His love,

Dear Hannah,

You do not know us, but we are fellow Pre-field missionaries and friends of Caleb and Christina. We just wanted you to know that we are praying for you and your family and we are trusting God to be your Comfort and Sufficiency as you rest in Him. We are so thankful for Gabriel's testimony and desire to touch other people's lives for His Glory. What an example for all of us who desire to follow the steps of our Saviour! We are also encouraged by your commitment to aiding the church-planting effort in Iraq. Thank you for your sacrifice and love for our Lord. You truly are an inspiration to all of us!

Love In Christ,

Dear Hannah:
Though God did not grant us the privilege of knowing Gabe in person as we knew you, we take great comfort in accepting the fact that God allowed us to know him in spirit and character - as a godly man and a godly husband and a godly father. We grieve for you and young Gabe but we find sweet peace in the assurance of the truth that God is our refuge and strength, a well-proved help in trouble" (Psalm 46:1).

My heart is broken for your family. I never knew Gabe, but his sister is my friend, and I know how important he was to so many people. Gabe's family and friends are in the thoughts, prayers, and hearts of so many. He will be remembered and loved. I am so sorry at the inadequacy of words.

So many people have written such sincere and loving words of concern for you, your son, and family members, that we could not add anything more to what has already been said so well. Even though we have never met you or your family, we grieve with you at this time and are praying, that the God of Comfort, Hope and Peace embrace you all, and that you may feel His love and Grace during this difficult time. (Romans 15)

Dear Hannah--You don't know us, but we learned of Gabriel's death, and our hearts cry for you. But we pray and are trusting the Lord to be very near to you at this most difficult time. Life is so hard to understand--only God knows why it was Gabriel's time, but God is never wrong--He loves you just the same, and He will always be with you. We will keep you in our prayers, and also have our church praying for you. Our love and prayers for all of your family and Gabriel's family.

Dear Hannah and Family,

I have never met you Hannah but I share in your lose. Although, I have not talked to gabe since I was a teenager, he was a big part of my childhood. I knew gabe since second grade, my brothers and I felt like he was one of our own, instead of having two brothers I felt like I had three. He was a great person even back then, some one to look up to, I knew he was going to do good things in the lord and he did. I am honred to call him a friend and brother in Christ. I will miss him dearly, but I also know I will see him again. So, it's not good bye my friend, rather it's, I'll see you again. Take care and God bless.

There is nothing anyone might say to ease the pin of your loss. We would however like to express our deep feeling of remorse that such a wonderful man was lost, not just to him loved ones but also to the nation.
May God bless you and draw you ever closer to Him. May he wrap His loving arms about you and hold you tight, causing you to feel that strength that He promises to give us at such times as these.
This young man has given of himself for all of us and we treasure the freedom that he has helped to provide for us. May his death not be in vain.

In this time of sorrow, may you trust in our Lord to bless you with the peace of His presence and the comfort of His love.

I am praying for you and your family.

Dear Hannah (and family),

I've never met you, but the testimony of your husband has had a big impact in my life in these recent days. What a beautiful thing that when he came to the end of his life, he was going where he wanted - to be with his Savior... and that those who knew him so well, including those much older than he, have been challenged to live more completely for Christ by his example.
My husband, Tyler, and I got married in the NBS chapel just two weeks before you did in December of 2004. The theme of our wedding, and now our marriage, is "In Christ Alone." We are continually learning about having our sole satisfaction in Christ alone so that we can allow the other person freedom to do and be all that he/she can be in Christ.
From the testimony I've heard of Gabe's life, I believe this was reflected in your marriage. Thank you for your example, and may the knowledge that your satisfaction is still found in Christ alone be a comfort to you in the difficult days and months and years ahead as you go through the missing process.

with love in Christ,

Dear Hannah,
My heart goes out to you and your whole family. We don't always understand God's purposes in our lives, but i'm so thankful that He is not only sovereign, but that He truly loves His own. May the God of all comfort extend His grace to you in a powerful way, and may he turn, what seems to us, and to you most of all, a great tragedy, into great blessing. My wife and i have been praying for you ever since we got the neword.

Dear Hannah,
These difficult days we want you to remember that the Lord is always with you and He is very close to those who are in grief. Let the Helper and Comforter strengthen and comfort you.
praying for you, Vadim,Valentina,Yuriy,Olga,Nick and Vitalick
