A selection of photos from the life of Gaby Hannemann 1957 – 2012. A tribute to a courageous person who was an inspiration to all who knew her.
Every time, I, Uta, watch these photos and listen to the music, I become very emotional again. What a celebration of our daughter’s life! As Peter says, she was an inspiration to all who knew her. And she always cared for every one in our family. We are never going to forget her!

I've lived in Australia since 1959 together with my husband Peter. We have four children, eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. I started blogging because I wanted to publish some of my childhood memories. I am blogging now also some of my other memories. I like to publish some photos too as well as a little bit of a diary from the present time. Occasionally I publish a story with a bit of fiction in it. Peter, my husband, is publishing some of his stories under berlioz1935.wordpress.com

It wouldn’t let me watch the video.
But I imagine it would’ve made me cry.
I wish I could’ve known Gabby. 🙂 She sounds like an amazing person and I know you miss her dearly. 😦
(((HUGS))) for you and Peter
I am sorry that you could not watch the video, Carolyn. I have no idea what the reason for the restriction is.
It works perfectly on our computer. A great moving tribute to a lovely women.
Thanks for letting me know, Gerard. We are always amazed about Gaby’s communication skills and how many people she did come in contact with and who volunteered to have their photo taken with her! She very much enjoyed living independently with the help of carers. She was very fortunate that she did get carers sent to her house. She had a great team of carers. Her carers were very fond of her as you can see from the photos.
I wasn’t able to watch the video either, Uta, with the restriction coming from “Pearl Jam”/music restriction. I vividly recall when you shared about your daughter’s passing, and the many stories you’ve shared that remind us of what a caring and precious woman she was. I can’t imagine your loss. A good friend of mine lost her daughter in October and the “reality” is just now settling in. Deepest and warmest wishes to you as you lovingly remember Gaby…and of course, she’ll never be far from your thoughts. ox
Sorry, Debra, about the restrictions for watching this video.
Thank you very much for your kind words. Yes, the “reality” is what we all have to live with.
Wishing you well, Hugs 🙂
