I still rmemeber that smile that day I bought hot homemade chocolate chip cookies to his office for helping me with a medicare problem. I did not have much to give but he enjoyed that so much. He became my friend through this and I will miss him. His encouragement to me about continuing my education and that fact that I was involve with the Literacy Volunteers gave me reason to keep going. He was happy when he found out my major was Social Services and that I was attending Pima Community College for it. He simple just enjoyed people and tried to help anyway he could. He will stay in my heart, my condolences to his family and the one he was to marry, I'm very sorry for our loss.

Sincerely, with love, Velda V. Crawley

Dear Family and Fiancee of Gabe,

Please accept my deepest condolences on the death of your dear Gabe. We have all lost a treasure--an admirable and caring young man who gave so much to our community. You must have been so proud of him!

As a parent, I feel that the loss of a child must be one of the greatest tragedies a parent could have to experience in life and my heart and prayers go out to you.

May God comfort you and give you strength!

With love and blessings,

I did not know your son Gabe, but I wanted to say thank you for raising such a fine young man. His example of hard work, determination, and ultimately his courage under fire, are all character traits that I hope my own sons, ages 17 and 9, will also strive to develop. I'm certain that your son is now, and will continue to be, an inspirational role model for young men everywhere.

I also wanted you to know that I know for certain that families can be together forever. There is life after death and we will have an opportunity to see our loved ones again. Our family has also been touched by death and a life snuffed out before it's time. This certain knowledge that death is not the end of all things, is the only thing that pulled our family through our own trials. May God bless you with a sure knowledge that you will see your dear son once again, is our humble prayer.

Only after his death did I find out that Gabe worked at Arizona's Children Association a number of years ago, ironically with troubled youth. My daughter Melissa, and I met him in Vail at a precursor to the ‘Corner’ events. Gabe was there to help constituents with any issue that Gabby’s office might help with. Gabe was welcoming, friendly, caring and so very helpful. We got the needed services and also a follow-up from Gabe some time later checking with us to make sure our issues had been handled. So, to our absolute horror, as we heard the dreadful news about the ‘wounded’ we immediately thought of Gabe, and the rest is………………..

Thank you for raising the kind of man we need more of in this world. The work I do with parents in teaching them 21st Century skills to help in respectfully raising their children will be in honor of the kind of role model you set for Gabe.
