Gabe Donovan DeathBack to News
Date of Death: May 7, 2008
Gabriel Fox Donovan, age 1, of St. Charles, Illinois passed away on Wednesday, May 7, 2008 at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. Gabe was diagnosed with AML (acute myeloid leukemia) in November of 2007. Shortly after completing his final round of chemotherapy in April he relapsed. The doctors and nurses continued to do the best they could for our son Gabe but a combination of the chemotherapy and infection took our son’s life. He will be continually missed by his family and the people whose hearts he touched.
He was born May 11, 2006 in Winfield, Illinois to James and Randee Donovan.
The Broken Chain
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,
And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.
Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
