I am so sorry to read of Sawyer's passing. I extend my condolences to the entire family. Psalm 34:18 says: Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. May you be comforted by his words during your time of bereavement.
I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. There is comfort that can be found at Revelation 21:3,4, which says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be any more. The former things have passed away." Soon, losses we sustain of any kind, be it the loss of a loved one or our peace of mind, will be done away with and reversed as if it never happened at all. I hope this promise can carry you through this difficult time and beyond.
What a genuine, sweet, well mannered boy Sawyer was. I will always remember him pushing his handsome face up against our pool screen Waiting on our Easter Egg Hunt :) Avery loved coloring and playing play doh with him, Aggie & B.Repp! I so wish I could have been there to support a family I admire so much! Deepest condolences from us all!
Summer...My heart aches for you. I have never seen someone be so strong. You & You're faith is an inspiration to all. Oh how much fun Jesus & Sawyer are having together!

Sawyer was such a sweet boy who brighten up the room with his infectious smile and laugh. I feel honored to have had the opportunity to get to know him and work with him this past spring. I will never forget his inquisitive nature, playing ball with him on the playground and his excitement over a sandwich made by mom with love. Hugs and prayers for the entire Gordon family.
I saw a picture of Aggie with Sawyer, she's standing behind him with such love in her little face. It's clear what a great big sister she was and still is. He's her angel now, forever with her, making her laugh. Please tell her it's ok to laugh out loud if a memory comes that made her laugh. I'm profoundly touched by this tragedy, but I know this little angel is whole and happy, dancing around laughing. What a blessing to have had him, if only for a short time.
Love...Donna ( CSR Naples Trail )
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Reppard and family,
I grew up with you at Methodist school center where we were all one little happy family. The Grady family loved the Gordon family for sure. Your mother was an inspiration to so many in Brooksville. Now I see such tragedy happen to your beautiful family. It's so clear how much you both as parents loved this little boy and how happy he was that you both were his parents. I can't make sense of these tragedies one bit and will never try to as its horrid. Please know that my heart is broken for you both. Many thoughts to your family as you continue to be amazing parents!!
We are so sorry for the loss of your sweet Sawyer. May the Lord's abiding love help you through this most trying time.
From your extended YMCA family here in NC, our hearts go out to you in this time and we pray that God will wrap his arms around you and carry you through the difficult times ahead.
We haven't met, yet the Faith & Strength within the Gordon Family will forever be with me. The love you've shown to my brother is a true example of Christ-like love and I'm forever grateful. My heart is heavy for your beautiful family. We know Sawyer is dancing with Jesus, shining so brightly. I pray that's the image of Sawyer you'll always carry with you. Lots of love.
Please know we are praying for your family today and the days to come.

We are praying that GOD WILL GIVE YOU PEACE AND UNDERSTANDING IN THIS TRAGIC MOMENT. We love you both, let us know if there is anything that we can do. We are currently out of town and unfortunately we won't be back until Saturday.

I was blessed to meet Sawyer a short time ago and I'm thankful I didn't miss out on his joyful presence. God bless the Gordon family, give them the peace and strength they need until they're all together again someday.
I sadly didn't have the privilege of meeting Sawyer, but I know I would have loved him. I enjoyed seeing all his pictures over the years and the one thing that always stuck out was his smile. He truly left an impression on me and I was beyond devastated upon hearing of his passing. He left such an imprint on everyone's hearts. The following is a poem I came across:
In your life you touched so many.
In your death many lives were changed.
You were an amazing young man.
Without you here, our lives will never be the same.
We miss you more than words could ever say.
Even more with each and every passing day.
We just hold onto the memories that we made and
All the promises God so graciously gave.
Resting assured when Jesus comes there will be no more sadness,
No more goodbyes, just life together eternally with Jesus by our side.
With Love and Prayers your way,
Summer and families words can not express how I fell about the lost of your baby sawyer but known that Our God is in control and he loves us know matter what
I have been praying for you all since I first heard this heartbreaking news. I didn't meet this little guy but I know Reppard from when I worked for him years ago at Bank of America.

Please know I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. May your sweet memories of him and your faith in the Lord continue to help you through this devastating time. Please accept my deepest condolences.
I know I will never forget Sawyer's sweet, happy face.
Many are praying for you to know God's comfort, strength and peace during this difficult time.
Words can not express the sense of loss your family must be is experiencing at this sad time. My heart goes out to you. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
