In memory of Gabe...

Would you please join us in praying for the family of a fellow HLHS friend, Gabe. Gabe was born in December of 2006 with HLHS, and shared many weeks with Austin in the NICU at UAB Hospital. We were truly blessed to have two other families walking the same journey with us during Austin's time in NICU- those friends are the families of Gabe and Mitchell.

Gabe's journey ended early this morning, as he went home to be with our Lord. Gabe passed away sometime this morning; his heart stopped as he went into cardiac arrest. Gabe was at home with his loving parents and baby sister. Gabe had been doing well, and was healthy; his death was sudden and a shock to his family and friends. Please join us in praying for this precious and dear family!

This came as a reminder to us, of the gift we have in Austin! It came as a very quick reminder to cherish each day in a special way and be thankful for the life Austin continues to live. Our hearts are heavy tonight as we begin to think of Gabe's family, and pray for them in the coming days! We're reminded that God is ultimately in control, and we're trusting Him in everything, even in this. Thank you!
