    So sorry, what a wonderful woman! Her smile and laugh and delight, and that look of “No, you didn’t!” when teased. Much love to you all and with you in spirit, prayers for peace and comfort. xoxoxo from the Vedders

    We are so sorry for the loss of your dear Gabriella. She was such a fun and wonderful lady. I will never forget how when we would come and visit you all, how much you can see she enjoyed and loved being with her family. I loved laughing and talking with her but wish I knew more Italian so we could talk even more. My dad was crazy about her and was looking forward to finally having that date with her but unfortunately he got sick. Before that, he would always ask: How’s Gabriella? I never forgot when Gabriella came to see him in the hospital. I still have a few videos of them chatting by his bedside. She will be dearly missed.
