Hi Corin, Nate & Gabe
It has been a long road but you two have made a beautiful baby boy. The road ahead may not be an easy one, but it will be well worth it in the end. I know I teased you about being too young to be a grandfather, but I am a very proud and happy grandfather. Be strong and keep postive thoughts as Gabe is a fighter and things will be fine. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Love you all,
Dad C. (Grandpa C.)

Hi Corin. Nate and Gabe,
It really looks like you have a great support group behind you....I can see it thru all the heart felt messages that are left. Gabe is a strong little boy. Look who he has for parents. He has the will to fight and will to win, I loved seeing all the pics since I couldn't be there. God is looking down on him and taking care of him.....Gabe is testing your nerves already....Ha Ha! He's saying 'mom and dad' just wait, this is just the beginning, wait until I'm 3 and then 13.....you think its bad now....I'm gonna keep you 2 on your toes...I love you all and my prayers are with you. I will talk to you soon. Tell Gabe gramma loves him and thinks about him all the time. I love you both too.
Love, mom c (gramma c)

Nate and Corin,
We are happy to hear that Gabriel has been doing better over the past couple of days. Even though he is not home with you on his first Thanksgiving, you are by his side, giving thanks for all the miracles you have been given. When I first heard of Gabriel's condition Saturday night after speaking with mom, my heart sank- as I knew how grave the conditon could be. Thankfully he has pulled through, and is doing much better now. He gave his parents and doctors a great challenge, but all have succeeded in getting him through his first few days of life, and they will continue to heal him so he can come home soon. He has been lucky to have the best doctors and medical care, but most importantly wonderful parents and a supportive family. We wish Gabriel good health and lots of love on his first Thanksgiving.
Angela, Glenn, Noah and Aidan

GRANDMA LAURIE WILKINSON November 24, 2006 at 03:39 AM EST
Hello, Nate, Corin and our precious little Gabriel! There's not a minute that goes by that we are not thinking of you, praying for you, and loving you! Little Gabriel, we have loved you from the day we heard you were coming! We prayed to St. Michael, St. Gabriel, & St. Raphael as well as to cousins Sr. Marie Rose Ferron, Bl. Andre Bessette & Bl. Dina Belanger etc.. and placed Gabriel under their care forever asking them to be with him at all times to protect, love, and guide him and I know they hear us and are doing so! It is wonderful to know they are interceding for him! Happy 6 days Gabriel, keep on fighting, you have so many here who love you! We will come to see you today! XOXOXOXO Nate & Corin, if you need anything give me a call before we come up.. xoxoxo See you soon! Love Grandpa & Grandma & Uncle Seth Wilkinson
GRANDMA LAURIE WILKINSON November 24, 2006 at 05:50 AM EST
Blessed Archangel Gabriel, we beseech thee, do thou intercede for us at the throne of divine Mercy in our present necessities, that as thou didst announce to Mary the mystery of the Incarnation, so through thy prayers and patronage in heaven we may obtain the benefits of the same, and sing the praise of God forever in the land of the living. Amen.
Patron Saint of Messengers.. The Hebrew word from which Gabriel is derived means "hero of God".
Saint Gabriel's feast day used to be 24 March, the day before the feast of the Annunciation. However, following the revision of the Calendar following Vatican II, he now shares a feast day with St Michael and St Raphael on 29 September.
Gwen Barron November 24, 2006 at 07:59 AM EST

Corin and Nate, make sure you are getting enough rest.. If you need to talk, give me a call anytime..
Sending love , postive energy, and hugs..

Hi Corin & Nate,
I hope I haven't forgotten how to type. It's been so long since I've had my fingers on a keyboard...Laurie has just shown me the pictures of little Gabriel. He is so beautiful even with all the equipment attached to him. I think of the three of you constantly and pray for you often during the day and even wake up at night with you all on my mind. I have everybody at church praying for you as well as many of my friends who don't go. God hears all prayers though. Hopefully, by this time next week you'll be back home Take good care of yourself and give little Gabe a kiss for me. Paul is praying for you at the nursing home and the staff and nurses inquire about your condition daily. We love you very much. Shirley

GRANDMA LAURIE WILKINSON November 26, 2006 at 07:19 PM EST
Dear Laurie, Heavens, I am stunned to hear what happened, and such a little guy. What a beautiful name-Gabriel. May St. Gabriel 's prayers assist him in every way.
Hi, Briefly, hundreds of people are praying for him and Mass intentions are offered for him. Folks at the Divine Mercy Shrine in Stockbridge, MA are praying for him, and this request has been placed on Mother Teresa's tomb in Calcutta. That is only a few, but I wanted you to know. Sorry I couldn't e-mail this before. I was gone to CT for three days. but right after I got your e-mail, I contacted oodles of people and I've gotten oodles of responses, even from Spain. Wow what a network God has, huh.
Peace of Jesus be with you, Love, +Joanne+
