RIP Little Gabe...

With a very sad heart I read on facebook this morning that this sweet little guy, Gabe passed away yesterday from Ewings Sarcoma (the same cancer that took our nephew, Shawn in April 2009). Gabe was six and a classmate of Lexy's, Lexy loved him and talked about him often. Gabe was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in May 2008. In May 2009 he was in remission. In October 2009 his cancer was back...by December 2009 it had spread from his hip to his spine, liver and lungs. Gabe went to school when he felt up to it and when he had to be in the hospital or at home his classmates would send "hope baskets" and videos of their school days.

The councelor at school has been going in and talking to Lexy and her classmates about Gabe's condition and answering any questions they may have. Today will be a very hard day for the class I'm sure. I'm so sad that Lexy has to see and learn about this, she's going to be so sad...
