Gabriel Thomas Littlefield was ten, strong, a little wild and blessed with an old man’s soul. He was dealt a tough card. He proved wisdom doesn’t always come with age.
He was the son of a fisherman.
When he became sick, a large community of fishermen came to his side. “Gabe’s Got This!” they yelled at cookouts, dinners and fishing tournaments. We can be a rough bunch but when it comes to children and fishermen who need help, all that attitude gets quickly washed overboard. He loved his Legos and Nerf guns, his one liner jokes which were not necessarily appropriate in all situations and his family. He loved his family. He was quick to stash away lollipops the nurses gave him to share with his siblings. In the midst of so much painful treatment, he was squirreling away lollipops for his family.
