Members Dane Posted January 22, 2013 Members Report Share Posted January 22, 2013 On January the 2013 we lost our son Gabriel in the middle of the night to the senseless tragedy known as the choking "game". I really have no idea why they call this a game, it is anything but. Gabriel was the oldest of 4 children, a son,big brother, grandson, great grandson, and nephew. He was loved dearly and he loved deeply. He had the best smile and he loved life. He loved hunting and fishing and being outside. He also loved animals. He had many friends and his teachers loved him, in fact they drove about 3 hours for his viewing and funeral, and brought with them close to 100 cards made by his classmates. We have since received many letters from his teachers that we will treasure forever.PLEASE parents talk to you children about the seriousness of this "game" all you have to do is google "the choking game" and there are many good sites out there. WE did talk to Gabriel about this maybe a year or so ago...maybe we should have talked about it more, but we can not change what happened, no matter how badly we ache to hold him and hear his voice....All we can do is pray for God's grace and cling to the promises of heaven...and do our best to spread awareness to this horrible "game"One little "hug" we got from God and Gabe came Monday the 14th when we tool our other 3 kids back to school for the first time, and after a emotional meeting with their teachers and councilors we left and were sitting in the truck feeling very blah. and Gabriel's favorite song came on the radio out of the blue, i had tried and tried to remember the name of this song for a week to add to his montage the funeral home was making, but none of us could remember it....i dont think we were meant to remember it....i think we were meant to hear it when we needed it the most....the last 2 verses really speak to us....Gabe would sing this all over...at home in the truck on the way to school....No guilt in life No fear in deathThis is the power of Christ in meFrom a life's first cry to final breathJesus commands my destinyNo power of hell no scheme of manCould ever pluck me from his handTill he returns or calls me homeHere in the power of Christ I standBelow is a link to a facebook page i made in memory of our precious son, and to help spread awareness....PLEASE visit and read up about the choking game and help spread awareness!!! https://www.facebook...pTheChokingGameand this is a link to the video we used at his memorial servicehttps://www.facebook...152436331530203 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
