  10. GABRIEL,

  11. Sorry for the loss. Another angel is watching over yall.. HeS always there in your hearts, memories, and all around..

  12. It’s so hard to believe you are gone…you were only mine for a little while as I was your nanny, but as your God mother, I loved watching you become a man. You were the one who called me to ask for home cooked country cooking, when you lived at the cabin. My boys miss you too. Justin is really struggling but we know we will see you again someday…really miss your contagious smile (it really lit up the room), your laughter, and your love of life. You never let anyone go without sharing all you had with others making sure they felt special. I’m blessed to have had the honor to be in your life. Watch over US now, I love you and forever will, Brandi Bee

  13. Big Hand..Amanda and the entire family..I watched Gabe grow up..Football ..Barbaques on the porch ..movies with the boy’s. I was blessed to be part of Gabes life for a long time. I don’t know what to say except Thank you Gabe for the memories all good ones and that you will be missed. I will see you again one day..Your friend ,David

  14. My heart aches right now as my son, Gabes step brother Gage is JUST NOW finding out about this because his sperm donor Jason LeBlanc couldn’t have the respect to let his step brother know of his death. We are in tears right now just learning of this…. We would have been there for you Gabe. We love you. You and you’re step brother Gage were so close when y’all were little boys. I remember all the birthday parties, you coming to spend the night… You’re heart was of gold my dear son. You will be so dearly missed by us, especially your brother Gage as he is so upset. He can’t sleep…he misses you, loves you and wants one wish: to see you one last time to tell you what you meant to him. God Bless you in Jesus name. Amanda, I am here for you my love. I cannot imagine your pain. Please know that you will see him again…. Thank you Gabe for being part of our lives. You will be missed more than you will ever know… xoxo~

  15. Gabe it’s your bro Gage.. Man I’m crying rite now typing this and just filled with emotions finding out. Brother I remember so mamy good times we had, you were NOT a step brother, you were MY BROTHER. U always had my back and helped me through so much as a kid and teenager. You had a GIANT heart and let nobody pick on/talk down/ or even look at your family wrong. You got me through a huge tribulation in my life were i felt i had nobody and no purpose but u stayed by my side everyday from the time we woke up, until the time we KO’d watching a movie ? Making sure i wasnt depressed or sad, always brightening my day keeping my mind off everything. I wish I could see u ATLEAST just one more time and just hug my brother.. I cant believe this random heart breaking tragedy but i know you are at peace. I love you Gabe and miss you more than words can describe.

  16. We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort continue to be with you and your family during this difficult time. We all look forward to a time when death will be no more-Rev 21:4. Our prayers are with you.

  17. I’ve been thinking about you today my Angel. I miss you more than you can ever imagine. I miss your laughter, your sweet smile, your loving kisses, your unconditional love, and your protection. I hope I’m making you proud. My heart aches everyday with out you here with me. Never in a million years did I think I would lose my best friend. You gave happiness a whole new meaning. You always insured me just how much you loved me. I miss our “sassy sundays” together, I miss waking up to you in your dolphin sweater, I miss every goodbye kiss you gave me, I miss you more than words can describe.
    Keep me strong and hold me tight sweet boy. I love you so so much!!

  18. My Dearest Gabe,
    This is your aunt Courtney. I am sorry that I am just now writing this letter to you. Ive tried several times and I couldn’t.
    I miss you. I miss you. I hope that wherever you are that you are happier than you have ever been. You deserve the absoulute best. You are and have always been an angel to me. The day you were born, oh what a special day that was. I became your aunt.
    Right away I knew that there would be a love between you & I that would be unbreakable.
    Through the years you have brought so many smiles to my face. I dont want to except the fact that you are gone.
    I hope you know how special you are and have always been to me. When Granette called me that was the worst night of my life.
    I love you so much. More than you could of ever of known. I promise u will never be forgotten.
    I have to be believe that you are holding God’s hand and riding on the clouds in heaven.
    Thank you for giving me the 22 years of your precious life. I love you with my whole heart.
    You will always be my Gabee.

  19. Happy valentines my sweet love,
    I wish you were here with me today to celebrate the amount of love that we share for each other. I would do anything to be able to see that beautiful face of yours today. I miss your smile and your goofy laugh. I miss our dance parties in the car and you grabbing my hand to slow dance with me in the kitchen. I miss you way you used to hold me when I would get emotional over watching too much Grey’s Anatomy, and the way you used to be able to bring me complete calmness when I would get stressed out with school work. I miss every little thing about you. The love I have for you is unmeasurable, you’re my best friend and my truest love. I’m so sorry our time got cut short, but I know you are right here with me. I am the luckiest girl in the world because you chose to love, cherish, and pour your heart into me. There is no one who compares to you.
    I remember our first Valentine’s Day together, when you drove to the cabin the night before to set up, you had rose petals all over the floor and bed, candles everywhere, and your famous home made lasagna ready to pop in the oven. I was so overwhelmed with love and happiness.
    I have your Valentine’s Day card from last year that I’ve been saving to read today. I know you will be sitting right next to me and keeping me strong.

    I love you more than you will ever know, you’re my trusses love and my forever and always. I’ll be sending you kisses all day my sweet boy.
    I love you.

  20. Gabriel Tyler Rogers, you stole my heart three years ago. I couldn’t resist your beautiful smile. You knew how to make me laugh like no other. You could make me smile just by looking into your eyes. Life has been so hard without you here. I miss your kisses and the weight of your hand in mine. I miss watching you sleep next to me and falling asleep on your chest. I am so thankful for all the amazing memories we made, all the countries we traveled to, all the love you showed me on a daily basis, all the support you gave me through sickness and health, all the ways you pushed me to be the best version of myself. I could never ask for a better person to be in love with. My love for you is unbreakable, you will always be my truest love and the best part of my life. I never knew I could be so happy until you swept me off my feet.
    You are my paradise.

  21. I’m suppose to go get my lab work done today, but I just can’t get myself out of bed to go. I know it’s just simple pre op lab work, just a few blood test, but people don’t understand that I’ve never done any of this without you. You’ve been my rock through all my sickness. The thought of you not here with me tortures my mind. The thought of me looking around in an empty doctors office for you scares me, because I know you won’t be there. Pre op test like this never bothered me before, it was all just a part of my recovery, but now things like this make me freeze with fear. Everything is so different now. I wont be holding your hand as I walk into the doctors office, I won’t be sitting next to you in the waiting room with my head on your shoulder, I won’t smile at you and tell you I’m okay when you ask if I’m scared. I won’t have your hand to hold. I won’t hear you tell me that everything will be okay and that we’re in this together.
    I would do anything to hold you. I love you so much, because God made you for me. My prefect person. The man I was put on this earth to love and cherish. You are my heaven.

  22. Good morning my love, I’ve been dreaming about you a lot lately and its so good to see your sweet smile. It makes my whole day. Today is a big day for me, I’m finally going to meet Myles! I know how badly you wanted to take a trip to New York to go visit him, so I’m happy I have the opportunity to finally meet him here in atlanta. I can’t wait to hear about all the wonderul and funny stories he has of the two of you. I know you’ll be sitting right next to us laughing with a big smile. I love you so much and miss you dearly.
    Smile big for me sweetums. I love you with all my heart!

  23. Thinking of you so much lately. I’m almost done with school; with all A’s and I know you would be so proud of me if you were here. I miss you daily. I often find myself thinking about how different our lives would be right now if you were here. I feels like it’s been more than 3 years since I’ve seen you but it also feels like just days. I miss your hugs and your beautiful smile. I would do anything just to hear your infectious laugh. My heart longs for the day I get to see you again. I love you my sweet Gabriel.
    Your truest love, kaylee.
