I'm so very sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry for the loss of Gavin. My twins were in classes with him and say his smile was infectious and that he was such a kind young man. Your family is in my prayers.

My thoughts will be with you. I will pray for him and his family until I pass on.

I was Gavin's kindergarten and first grade aid at Lincoln Way. Gavin was such an inspiration. Every morning he was off the bus with a smile. He was so determined to run and play just like everyone else. His growth throughout the year was unbelievable. I feel so blessed to have been part of his life. I know I will never forget Gavin and the impact he had on me and those who had gotten to truly know him. My prayers to his family and the community. May God be with us all durning this time of healing.

As a parent who lost a child on his own hand, my heart goes out to you and your family forever. Someday life will go on; always with some pain, Please know there are others out here who know just how you feel. My sincere love to all of you.
