“He was the most loving father, husband, and son. He was the best daddy. He dedicated his whole world to taking care of me and to taking care of his kids. He did so much for all of us that I don't think I ever could have possibly expressed how much I adored and appreciated him. He was my love story. He promised me 300 years. He truly was my soulmate and we always said that we found something so special that so many people live a lifetime without ever getting to experience. In all the highs and all the lows, he was my rock. Please, keep all of us in your hearts, thoughts, and prayers. His kids, his mom, his siblings, my siblings, and the countless friends we've made family both near and far. Life will never be the same. This is so unfair. Gabriel Bregg you will forever be my one and only, the love of my life. I hope you knew that I treasured you and adored you and that you gave me so much more than you can ever imagine. Hug my Mom for me and your dad.”
