My thoughts are with Gabe’s family. I didn’t personally know him, but he sounds like he was a honorable and interesting person. I only hope that I can offer just a little comfort. The promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that God will end death and we will see our loved ones in the future. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

It is so very sad to learn of your father's passing. It is still a very fresh understanding of what you must be feeling and going through having experienced my own dad's recent passing. My prayers for unexplicable peace from our Lord and comfort through these next days, weeks and months! You are such a blessing and it is my prayer that God showers you in kind during this very tough journey you are now having to traverse! Much love to you, Cindy and your entire extended family!

My prayers for the family during this time of grief. I just checked the website today and was saddened to see Gabe's name. We worked together at Telfair State Prison, many years ago, and I remember him well. Again, my sympathy on your loss.
