  • Although I didn’t see Gage as much as I used once he started getting older, I did see him a lot when he was little and I know he’s going to be deeply missed by many people. When I did get the chance to see him he was always so full of life and happiness. This is a tough one for sure. I haven’t stopped thinking about Gage and his family since I heard the news and I just hope that all of the people closest to Gage can find some peace eventually. I know it won’t be easy and I know it won’t be anytime soon. Much love for you all, and I hope Gage is soaring high right now.

  • Dear Aaron, Curtis, Cheryl, Sasha, and Katie–
    In times like this, words seem entirely inadequate to express the sorrow I know you all are feeling in your hearts. No one should ever lose a child, a grandchild, a nephew– to have Gage taken from you so young is unfair and unfathomable. I am so,so, sorry to hear about his passing. I will be holding you and your family to the light. May his memory be a blessing.

  • I had Gage in my reading class at CES. He was such a good kid, always eager to please. He worked hard and NEVER left my room before cleaning up his things, his classmates things and even my supplies. I looked forward to his daily visits. My heart is heavy!! I am so very sorry for your loss.
