Gabbrielle Elizabeth Duncan was more than just a best friend to me; She was a sister, a therapist, the voice of reason in our otherwise unstable teenage years. She accepted me and loved me for who I am as a person not for what I was on the outside. She saw things into me that others couldn't even dream of discovering. Her heart was pure and made of gold. Returning to my school without her is incredibly difficult because I will see rooms that remind me of her (the Theatre, The choir room, German club). Gabby Duncan has impacted my life and heart and I know she's with me because Angels protect humanity. "God just needed another angel" - quote unknown

Gabi was a former student who hung out in my classroom most mornings or popped in during the day just to hangout and talk. She was very smart and kind and we enjoyed talking about books, Harry Potter, library trivia bowls, Hamilton and things going on in life. She is the first student I’ve ever lost and I miss her very much. Gabi was incredibly trustworthy, loyal and a wonderful person to know. She is so loved and missed.

I’m sorry to hear about your loss and pain and wanted to share the Bible’s hope of a resurrection at John 5:28,29 at a time when there is no more sickness pain or death right here on earth according to Revelation 21:3,4. May the god of comfort give you comfort by means of the scriptures in this time of bereavement.
