I'm so sorry for your loss. As you know I lost my husband in Iraq as well. It hurts so bad to see that other people are going through the same pain. I know how bad the pain hurts. Our whole worlds changed in those few seconds. I know how it feels to have your whole world just stop. My prayers are with you always and your little boy is just beautiful! I can see the love you and your husband shared through your pictures.

May God help you find peace. Our husbands have joined their fellow comrades and are guarding the gates waiting for us. Our husbands spiritis will live on through us.

Gone But NOT forgotten.

Dear Hannah and families;
I’m thinking about Gabriel DeRoo and his beloved family tonight. The Holy Spirit prompts me to pray for you all. God bless you as you continue to trust Him. Mark 5:19b says “…Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you.” God have compassion on you and bless you.
David Martin Stevens ~ Psalm 118:24 T.I.T.D!
“This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.”

This Word is not speaking about a happy, sunny day on our beautiful blue planet. It is in the Passover Psalms 113-118. That “day” was the day of death; of the Passover Lamb of God, Jesus the Christ. But because of His victory, we His people turn the day of despair into a day of worship before the Lord. At this Passion and Easter season, the Words of Psalm 113-118 are powerful and touch our hearts. Tonight some remind me of Gabriel DeRoo and his extended family.
“You who fear the Lord, trust in the Lord;
He is their help and their shield.” Psalm 115:11 “The Lord has remembered us; He will bless us.” Psalm 115:12a
“Then I called upon the name of the Lord:
“O Lord, I implore You, deliver my soul!” Psalm 116:4
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15. (Their deaths, like their lives, are significant and important to God.)
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is Good!
For His mercy endures forever.” Psalm 118:29 God bless you. DMS

Dear Hannah and little Gabe,
Our hearts grieved with you at the time we heard of his homegoing right after it happened. We have tried to imagine what it would be like to lose one so very special and know that it must still be so difficult. Many times in the ensuing months, our thoughts and prayers have gone out for you and little Gabe. The testimony your Gabe left behind, especially the way he loved you, was something that really touched our hearts, that we shared with our sons as a wonderful example. Truly you were blessed by God to have had the love of a man who loved God so very much. I finally went to the website and read through all the notes telling of Gabe's impact on the lives around him, as well as the way God is using your reliance upon Him as you face each day. I was moved recently hearing of the Open House you were holding for your fellow believers from Discovery. It is God reaching out to others through you despite your great loss. We love your family dearly. We will continue to lift you up to the Father as He brings you and little Gabe into our thoughts. May His great love and grace continue to comfort you. jerry and Lynda Neuman

Dear Hannah

As a long time friend of your parents and one who looks forward to their Christmas letter each year, I was very sad to read the news about Gabriel. It took me back to the time in my life when I, as a young mother with 2 small children face my first Christmas without my husband. I well remember the longing to still be "connected" to him. This short poem brought me such comfort-as it seemed like the union was still there. May it speak to you and comfort you.
"Death doth hide, but not divide:
Thou art but on Christ's other side!
Thou art with Christ and Christ with me,
In Christ, united still are we.
There is so much I would say to you, so a letter will follow.
I have your parents address. God bless you today

I cannot begin to express how sorry I am for the loss of your husband. I was at the memorial service on Fort Lewis and was very touched. I know this note comes kind of late, however I just happen to come across your beautiful site.

I never had the honor of meeting Gabriel, however my husband who is currently serving Iraq knew him well. He has told me many time what a wonderful man he was. Please take care and stay strong for the little one. If you ever need anything at all, please don't hesitate to ask.

Dear DeRoo Family, I am so very sorry to hear of the loss of your beloved son, brother, husband, and father. Our family just learned of this trajedy today, 10/15/06. Our family loved the math teacher father, David, for all the help he gave so lovingly to our oldest three children, Melissa, Amanda, & Jonathan. We appreciated his caring and concern and loved the fact that he brought his whole family to the graduation parties of our children. May God uphold you all, especially little Gabe Junior, who never will have a chance to play ball with Dad, share birthday parties, swim at the beach, and all the other fun stuff of families. You are all in our prayers. Heartfelt condolences, the Gary & Marcia Howe family (Melissa Schmidt, Amanda, Jonathan, Matthew & Rebecca).

Dearest family, my heart goes out to you and I can only say that I pray the God of all comfort will fill you with His love and care. I am proud to know that people like Sgt. Deroo have stood in our defense--he has my deepest respect and admiration and I promise to never forget the sacrifes he and his comrades have made for us.

With love and gratitude,

Dear Hannah,

What a lovely family you are blessed with! Looking at your family pictures with you and your husband Gabriel with little Gabriel II must be comforting for you. The smiles, the happiness and the twinkle in your eyes even, say it all in those photos. Love abounds, indeed.

Your husband made the greatest sacrifice a man can do by offering his life for his country. In my eyes he is a true hero.
Please know that I am one of those many people whose thoughts and prayers go out to you and to your little one. May your heart be full of peace and enlightenment. I am sure that your husband is watching over you and his son right now.
To your parents Mark and Nancy and to all your family and to Gabriel's as well, I offer my heartfelt sympathy. I thank your cousin Mike Suko for sharing the info about this website with me. I attended your sister's wedding with him last year. God bless!

Dear Hannah,

The Lord gave me a special blessing at your sister Ruths bridal shower. He allowed me the honor of sitting next to you and getting to know you a little...you and your family were willing to be used of the Lord in protecting our country and our freedoms and securing these blessing for our future generations. I know freedom is not free and your sacrifice filled my heart with gratefulness as I know what it costs. You and little Gabe will forever be in mine and my family's prayers. We will not forget your awesome sacrifice and if there is ever anything we can do for you...please don't hesitate to ask. You, Gabe and little Gabe are heros in our eyes! Thank you, Hannah!

All our love through Jesus Christ our Lord,
