I am so thankful for the love and friendship Gabe gave to Ella, even at suck a young age. Here are almost a year later and my baby still talks about Gabe and how much she misses him. Everytime she gets a balloon she wants to let it go and send it to Gabe in heaven. My thoughts and prayers still go out to the Skipper family.
You know, I think of the family so much and I can only imagine how hard each day still is for all of you. I do pray that you find comfort and peace and I know he is a precious little angel watching over each of you.
I miss you so much baby boy!!! I hope you got a great view in heaven to watch those fireworks last night!!! Also, while we celebrate your 5th birthday tomorrow, stay very close to us and show us a sign that you're near and that you're ok alright sweetheart? I love you to infinity and beyond baby boy!!!
So sorry for your loss! I cannot imagine the pain you are feeling! May God comfort you in this sad time!
In Christian concern and loving care, you were uplifted in prayer by The Mens Prayer Fellowship of Dauphin Way United Methodist Church.
I cant say i know how you feel because i dont.I can say that your entire family is in my prayers. I know that James will be greatly missed and he was so muched loved.
James I can't even imagine or understand the pain that you and and your family are going through. We all know that Gabe is sitting in the hands of God and rest assured you will see him again !!! May God comfort you and your family through this most difficult and painfull time. God bless you !!!
My sweet little angel, I love you so much. When your mommy was telling your story, it touched so many people. Then when we were getting ready to send you the balloons, we knew you were excited for them, because you made the wind blow, and almost blew the balloons away. We will always love you, and we will never forget you or that smile that lit up the room. Until we meet again sweet angel. Hug Paw-Paw for me baby.

My prayers are with ya'll during this difficult time
My heart and prayers go out for you all. I pray God give you that peace that surpasses all understanding. That He cradle you in the palm of His hand and hold you ever so close. You will see him again! Oh! the joy on that day!
My thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time.
Life is so precious, it's breath taking, it's filled with joy, memories, and unique personality, God puts so many unique and beautiful ingredients to his most wonderful creations, and that's children. To watch their little characteristics, to listen to their creative mines and imaginations, and watching them hit the ball off the “T” makes all of your daily stresses go away. Children bring joy and love into our hearts and I hope and Pray that the Skipper family, relatives and Friends remember; Ecclesiastes 11:5
As you do not know the path of the wind, or how the body is formed[a] in a mother's womb,
so you cannot understand the work of God, the Maker of all things.
Losing anyone is hard, I have lost my wingmen in the military, buddies I have played ball with, family members, and My best friend (my father 1.5 ago) all unexpectedly, but on the tough days when I miss them the most this verse answers my hurt, and after a couple of tears, I smile and close my eyes and picture them all dancing at the gate with my father and Little Gabe Skipper.
God Bless you all!

As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
Gabe was such a beautiful little boy, I love listening to the stories that Ella would come home and tell me about him. God doesn't make mistakes and even though we don't know the answers or reasoning brhind some of his choices, everything happens for a reason. You family will remain in mine and Ella's prayers. May God give you the stregnth to be strong in this hard time.
