This is a reblog of a blog I published six years ago, and I did write in a comment: ‘I thank all the carers for the outstanding care they’ve been giving Gaby over many years. I love you all!’ Looking at the photos again, I am reminded again of the excellent care Gaby has been given and how this enrich the last years of her life! Tomorrow is going to be the 8th anniversary of her dying. Gaby, you are not forgotten!
And here is something else I wrote in the comment section six years ago:
‘. . . . in lots of ways Gaby made sure that we are always going to remember her. She has been very much a family person, even for all these years when she lived apart from her family. Over the years it became more and more apparent, how brave she actually was. Thinking back over her life now, her braveness is something that maybe we did sometimes not fully comprehend but took it somehow for granted. I think she deserves that we celebrate her life, for she showed us how to enjoy life, even when it means to have to overcome a lot of difficulties.’
Gaby died on the 15th of July 2012. This is going to be two years ago tomorrow. I copied here a post I published two years ago as a celebration of her life. The pictures show a lot of her carers, friends and family. We all remember you, Gaby.
Give thanks to the
Lord, call on his
name; make known
among the nations
what he has done.
Sing to him, sing
praise to him; tell of
all his wonderful acts.
Psalm 105; 1-2

Aw 😦 such a great loss and deep sadness…and I know the “anniversaries” of loved ones deaths can be so difficult. I have you, Peter, and your family in my thoughts.
This post is a wonderful tribute to, and celebration of, Gaby and her life! 🙂
Yes, the carers always deserve our thanks, praise, and appreciation! 🙂
HUGS, Uta 🙂
