Memorial Fund For Gabby Ellis

Gabby Ellis. To know her was to love her. She was the most responsible 12 year old we've ever met. She was the kind of girl you trusted to watch your little ones. She was the kind of girl you let take care of your fur babies when you went out of town. She was also the kind of girl who tried to give you back half of what you paid her because she thought it was too much. She had a heart of gold and a beautiful smile. She was the best big sister a little brother could ask for and the heart of the Ellis family.
The loss of Gabby is truly unfathomable. It's so heartbreaking, especially if you were lucky enough to have known her. And if you are a parent yourself, you feel it even more. You have to wonder, how do parents who lose a child move on? And the truth is, you don't. You keep going, but you don't move on. In addition to losing their beloved Gabby, they also lost her grandmother Lois (Todd's mother) in this tragedy.
And so I urge all of you to consider donating to Gabby's family to help take the financial burden of this tragedy off their shoulders. In doing so, let's give them the gift of time to process and begin healing.  And if you can't afford a donation, please lift this family up in your daily prayers. Thank you.

I am so so deeply saddened as a parent of a close knit family as well. My heart has been pouring out to you all since I heard of this. Though I can't afford a donation immediatly, I would like to offer a prayer donation in the mean time. Time/Life is but a borrowed gift. What an absolute tragedy this is for sure! Lord bless their hearts to look to you for comfort through all of this - it's impossible to understand any of this, and where hurt and heartache overwhelm the soul, please Heavenly Father show your grace upon them with love and mercy in these moments. Shelter their hearts from bitterness and anger for never being able to know "why." Jesus I know you weep with them. God you know their pain in losing such a precious child. Reveal to them your empathy Savior, for you too have experienced and watched such a tragedy in your son Jesus Christ. But Even so, thank you Father for sending your son so that in these situations, they are welcomed home to you with such heavenly grace. Still Lord, we grieve for the sudden loss, the words unspoken, the helplessness felt in all of this. We grieve for we lack the strength to bear the deep hurt and sorrow, and thank you for being tender enough to come to us and say that we don't have to be. Thank you Lord for the gift of your strength and your arms to carry each of us through this ... Moment by moment, hour by hour, day by day - in your loving name, Lord, mighty healer. Amen.

All that has been on my mind today is Uncle Clint telling Gabby she is visiting him way to early at the gates of Heaven. I am so sorry that you are going through this.
