Gabriel Taye Memorial Fund
$20,225 of $19,000 goal
Gabriel is dearly loved by his friends and family. He is survived by his mommy, Cornelia Reynolds, his daddy, Benyam Taye, and his sister, Eden Taye . He is also survived by many cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.
Your kind donation will be used to fund Gabe's funeral and memorial.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
*Gabe's mommy would also like to ask that parents and caregivers listen to your children. If your child tells you they are being bullied, act fast. Don't stop reacting, even after notifying the school or the police. You are your child's first and last advocate.*
The video footage of an incident in which Gabe was injured and knocked unconscious two days prior to his death will be released by the police to the media within the next couple of days. We pray that each child involved in Gabe's victimization receives the help they need and that the others who are on the receiving end of the violence will stand strong and know they are not alone.
Cornelia continues to struggle with the loss of her beloved son. She and he have both been robbed - him of his life, her of the joy of raising him. The rest of us have also been cheated the opportunity to watch him grow up. Any prayers you can spare for Cornelia are truly appreciated.
Gabe and Cornelia are my family, and everyone who knows them is struggling right now to come to terms with this tragedy. He was a bright light to everyone whose life he touched.
I am withdrawing the funds and meeting with Cornelia tomorrow to pay for the headstone and balance on the rest of the plot. She really wants something special for him, and thanks to all of you, she will be able to do it.
Remember to talk to your children about being kind to others. If your child is the bully, put an end to it; help save that other child. If they are on the receiving end of bullying, do NOT stop acting. Be the advocate your child needs. It could save a life.
Again, thank you so very much.
First and foremost, I would like to express my gratitude, for the kind words and donations. I am Gabriel Taye's Mother and it hurts my heart to bury my child this soon. No parent ever thinks of burying their child. With this being said, no one has the right to post a comment about my child funeral arrrangements. Especially when they did not or isnt going to help. So , if you have it to give, the least amount Helps. A funeral is expensive and I just pray that everyone can come togther during this time of need. If you can't donate money donate a prayer. Thank you.
Dear Gabriel's Momma and family, Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the loss of your beloved child. I am navigating this same road with the loss of our precious first born grandson Rex age 11, on 2/11/16. Please feel free to reach out to me, it is a tough journey with no answers that ever seem clear or acceptable. My heart truly breaks and I hold you up in prayer and am so sorry you are a member of a club no one wishes to be in. There are no words in any language sufficient enough for child loss. The Compassionate Friends network may be of some comfort to you in the coming days. As stated, i will always be available should you need someone to talk to at any hour. Love and Hugs to you and your beloved family. Roxie ~ Rexsnana

My wife and I created JJs hello foundation to help prevent youth suicide in the wake of our tragedy we hope we can help others heal and stop from taking there lives.

I'm SO sorry for your loss. I lost my sweet boy at only 19 months old. My heart just breaks for you that something so tragic happened! Please reach out in the future if you need someone to talk to.... Cayse Wright knows how to get in touch with me..... I'm praying for your family. I wish I could give more....
To Gabriel's family, it just made me sick to think that someone would have been unkind to your precious son. He was so young, and I hope you can find Peace eventually. For someone to be so mean to another, that the only way they felt an out was to end their life, is just so tragic! R.I.P. sweet boy!
I am so sorry for your loss. Although I do not personally know you or your family, I find myself in tears often thinking about the terrible and painful loss you're living through. On April 29th my college is hosting a suicide prevention walk, and I wanted to let you know I'll be walking for Gabriel. You have support networks all around the world, and strangers who love you. You're not alone, you're never alone
