Gabe always made himself available if you needed him! He wore his heart on his sleeve and would go to any length to bring a smile to your face when you needed it most. He lived his life loving his fellow man. Could any of us hope to live up to those standards? Anyone who knew Gabe is feeling this loss... All of our love and care go out to his wonderful wife Janis. We miss you already Gabe! All our Love Jeremy, Maggi and Benjamin.
