A tough week...

GABE, Tanner, Dallin, Michael

Dallin's dear friend Gabe passed away last Tues. He was one of the youth from our ward. He graduated high school this past June. He loved baseball, Nintendo and playing his guitar. The funeral will be on Wed. the 31st at 11 am. The Priest's will be the pallbearers and the Priests and Laurels will sing. Gabe will be greatly missed! We love you, Gabe!
(Please pray for his family!)

So sorry, Shaila. I hope I never have to experience losing a child. My heart aches for his parents. I hope your son & his friend's family can feel of Heavenly Father's love and comfort at this time.

Oh Shaila. Oh Shaila. I am so very sorry to hear about this all too soon passing. Breaks my heart.

Mattie lost a friend in October. I remember the feelings like it was yesterday. This family is going to need our prayers big time.

How is your son doing? I will pray for him too.

Big big hugs for all. Love you guys.

Oh no! I am so sorry to hear about his passing. His poor family. I can't imagine how difficult this is for them. There's really nothing I can say except that I'm incredibly sorry they've been asked to endure such a loss.

Ashley said...

Oh that is so sad! One of my best friends died in a car crash when I was in high school, and it was so hard for everyone. My prayers are with you all!

I am sure your son and the rest of the youth in the church are just stricken by this. I have never had anyone close to me pass except for my grandparents. I hate to type this. I don't want to hex myself.

May you all be kept in the hollow of his hand.

How did he pass?? What took his young life?

Melinda said...

This is so sad, I will pray that your son and his friends along with this young man's family will feel the peace that only our loving Heavenly Father can bring at such a tragic time.

Glahn Family said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhh Shaila, WOW, Im so sorry. That is so hard for the youth to deal with that emotion. Bless them all and Gabe's family. Do I know this Family? Are they from Moreno Valley? again, sorry and lots of prayers.

Shaila,

You have been on my mind these pass few days and I am keeping Gabe, his family, friends and your beautiful family in my prayers. I pray everyone involved can feel the sweet peace of the comforter at his time.

With heartfelt love,
Beth

Jenn said...

Oh Shaila, That's just horrible.

Tink said...

Shaila, that is sooo tragic. I'm always saddened by a young one passing away. My prayers are with you and his family as well. Some things are just unexplainable. My cousin's two boys died within 2 years of each other. It was sooo hard. One died of brain cancer, the other from congestive heart. Two have 2 of your 4 children taken from you is tragic; so I can totally feel for anyone in a situation who loses a child. God bless to all.

kitchenditcher said...

What a tragedy! No parent should ever have to outlive their child. Without a doubt that has to be THE HARDEST thing to endure. My heart goes out to their family and your son.

Love you Shaila!

Jan said...

Happy New Year Shaila. Really on my mind over there :)

I haven't been on the blogoshpere for quite a while so I was popping in to say hi... what a sad post. I am so sorry for your loss. In May my son's best friend died and it has been a hard 7 months. I am thinking of you, your son, and all the families dealing with this loss...

Jodi said...

Wow, that is tough. I hope your son is doing okay with it. When my son passed away, his closest friends REALLY struggled to come to terms with it. It is so hard to understand, especially at that age.

I will keep you all in my prayers.

Merrianne said...

oh my gosh. that is so sad!!!! His family is in our prayers.



{yes... i am back in the bloggy world... i missed everyone too much!}

Tara said...

So very sorry to hear...my heart breaks. I was your sons age when I lost my BF @ 19 years old...I think of her every day. What a blessing to know what we know and have the faith and knowledge that we do in times like this...but it's never easy. Sending love and prayers.
