Jayne and I are praying for all of you as your loss strikes very close to our hearts. Our son Matt was deployed to Iraq on 8/24/06 for his first deployment. Mark, I remember you telling me that Gabe was being redeployed; It is hard for me to believe that he has been deployed to Glory! I can only imagine the depth of emotions you are all feeling. Thank you for keeping us informed and for the beautiful web page on Gabe. We are very thankful for Gabe's service to all of us and for Hannah's desire for Christ to be magnified in her husband's death. God bless and comfort you all.

I never met Gabriel and barely know you, Hannah, but my heart aches for you and your family in this time of loss. May the Lord continue to shower you with His grace, comfort, and peace in the midst of grief.
In His love,
Kristi Abram

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!

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.

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.

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,
