I was blessed to be able to watch all the coverage on this little boy and I shared it with my son. Although we never met him, we prayed for Gabe and used his example of courage to get us thru our own diffuculties. My heart goes out to his family and to his friends~ he truly was a remarkable little man.
God Bless you all.....

My mom's best friend Peggy knew Gabe, I have been kept up to date this whole time on his situation. Today driving to work i was looking up at how beautiful the sky was and how we take life for granted and i was thinking about Gabe, I had never met him, but yet he was heavy on my heart. I was sad that this little 7 yr old dude couldnt go outside and play, couldnt enjoy the things we take for granted everyday, couldnt go home next month for his birthday and it hurt me deep in my soul. i was so very sad and as i said, ive never met him. Then about twenty minutes after i got to work my mom called and told me that Gabe went home to Jesus. I felt so devasted and wonder WHY?! How unfair, then i watched this video and read this story and realized, Gabe was an angel sent down to touch and teach everyone he met about faith, courage, and the strength that God can provide. Gabe was an angel.........Rest peacefully in heaven with Jesus.....No more pain Gabe, i will see you when i get there, i really want to meet you!
