Gabby played softball, starting with t-ball at age 5, loved animals, watching movies, and baking. She had the most infectious smile and a contagious giggle, along with a great sense of humor. Spending time with family was important to Gabby. No matter where the destination was, she loved just being there for the ride and wanted to go with. She enjoyed many new outdoor adventures such as camping, fishing, sailing, swimming, and more. She would take her dog, Brutus for a walk every day and was excited for her new dog, Dexter. Cooking had become one of many new interests as she was beginning to grow and figure out who she was, she even rearranged her schedule so she could include a cooking class.
