Special Request

Remaining States - Rhode Island - Wisconsin - South Dakota

Ok...I don't want to stop trying to get to all 50 states but we do have a special request. We want to remind people that this is a celebration of Gabi's life and the continued celebration of her memory. Please don't feel like you have to dress in dark colors. I will be wearing a blue suite with a pink shirt and pink tie for my pink and squishy. Micah will be wearing grey with yellow for her sunshine. Gracie will be wearing black and white polkadots for her gabber goo! Dress to celebrate a beautiful little girl.

Here is the information for the services again.

Saturday August 25th starting at 10:30 AM at the following church and address.

Lawrence Heights Christian Church
2321 Peterson Road
Lawrence, Ks 66049
http://www.lawrence-heights.org/

Memorial Fund - Gifts of Gabi's Grace

We also want to remind everyone that even if you have never met us in person if you have followed along with us on this journey you deserve to be at the service to celebrate in her life with us. Not to mention we would love to meet the people that our daughter has made an impact on.

Love,
Jason, Micah, Gracie, Gabi (Our Pink and Squishy Angel Above)

Hi Jason and Micah

I just wanted to leave you a quick comment. You may not know me, but I went to high school with Micah. I found you on my space which led me to this site. May God be with you in remembering your precious little angel. I grew up in a home with two handicapped siblings, I learned so much from them, that I wouldn't trade them for anyone. I feel so lucky to be their sister. Three days ago, I started my teaching career as a Special Education teacher for the Raytown School district. I love it!! These past few days, I have learned so much. I have a passion to teaching. I just wanted to send you message letting you know that Gabi is safe in the arms of Jesus Christ. He will protect her so that someday you both can see her again. He loves her and he loves you both. I don't know what it feels like to lose a child but my heart and prayers are with you and your family. Take Care

We can know that we will see her again one day.I know she was a blessing and an inspiration to all who knew her. I am here if you need me.Even though the pain eases it is never gone, but we grow through our trials. Keep your eyes on Our Lord and He will help you get through the tough times.May Our Lord always surround you with His love and comfort.

Micah and Jason-
I know that Saturday is a special
celebration of your sweet angel.
One of my friends decided to make
something for you that she thought
you might want to use for service.
It is a pretty box that is decorated with cards inside that you can put pictures on. I wasn't
sure if you want to use this for Saturday. If you want me to get this to you before Saturday just let me know and I can get it to your dad or mom. She wanted to do something nice for you because Gabi indirectly affected her through me. I feel so blessed to
have gotten to spend some time with her. I will miss her greatly!!
I know you are overwhelmed right now and I know our lives have changed and gone in different directions but I have never stopped loving you or caring about you. Our kids were bringing us back together. I pray we can continue moving forward. I will be
here to help you all in any way I can!!!
Just let me know if you want me to get this to you!!
Many hugs and kisses to you all!
Paula

Micah and Jason,
I am so sorry, but Nate and I will not be able to attend Saturday, however we will be thinking of you all, as we always do. I want you to know that although we have not been around each other much in person, and never had a chance to meet little Gabi, she has such a special place in my heart. Reading along with her blog brought back a lot of memories for me of when Kaden was in the hospital. Your little angel reminded me so much of my little angel in so many different ways. When I checked the blog on Monday I was praying so hard to read better news. When I saw the title I just broke down and cried. I was in absolute shock. Being close to that with Kaden, it brought back a lot of emotion and my heart broke knowing that you are having to experience such a hard situation. My heart continues to ache for your family, and every day I have checked in since, I have not been able to hold back tears. Nate and I will always be here for you all, and I hope that we can stay in touch. I continue to pray for you two and your family. Take care and sweet dreams little angel. XOXOXOXOXOXOXO

Jason & Micah,
I've been following Gabi's blog since Nate and Amy told me about her. I'm so sorry to hear the news and just wanted to let you know that you're in my thoughts and prayers! I've loved keeping up on what's happening in your lives. She's definitely made an impact in mine! Take Care

I heard about your story from a friend of mine in MT, and if I can't help in any other way, at least to let you know someone in Alaska has been touched by your angel. I've read your blog bottom to top. I am so sorry for your loss, but I hope you realize the impact you all have made on so many people. What a beautiful little girl that brought so much love to your family and your new extended family across the country and the world. I will be thinking of you through this difficult time, but remember what wonderful things this little girl did in her short time here. She is truly an angel from above.

Love,
Heidi (Anchorage, AK)

I just came across your blog on Big Blueberry Eyes. My heart aches for you. I cannot imagine life without my baby girl. Looking at the pictures of Gabi I saw my Ella Grace. My prayers are with you. God Bless

P.S. I am from Fairbanks, Alaska and just returned from spending 7 weeks up there on Tuesday, so maybe you can cross Alaska off your list.

Jason, Micah, and Gracie,

You all are truly an inspiration to everyone you have come in contact with over these months. Although I do not have the perfect words to say, you are all in my thoughts and prayers as you travel this difficult journey.

Love to all of you,

Micah and Jason,
I am at work today and can't be at Gabi's celebration of life service. It is now 10:00 and I will be thinking of nothing but Gabi for the next few hours. The girls at work are all thinking about your family. It is interesting how God works. My grandmother just passed away on Sunday. That is why I could not be with you when Gabi went to Jesus. My grandma was a Christian woman who has been saying for years, "I just want to go home to see Jesus." My grandma was such a wonderful woman with an infectious smile. At her memorial the pastor said that if there was a welcoming committee in heaven that Mary would be on it. She died merely 12 hours before Gabi. I like to think that she was there to welcome Gabi home. It is bringing tears to my eyes to think that they may know each other now. They would make such great buddies! I miss you guys and hope that someday we can see you back up here for a quick hello. You are continually in my prayers.
All my love,
Valerie (RN, PICU)
