Here is a selection of tributes to Gaby’s life:
Romina Bongiovanni: “You were beautiful, kind, always calm, brilliant, inspiring… It feels like it was yesterday we were leaving the office to attend our first HPRA event in our cute little suits… Throughout the last 15+ years we reached out to each other for ideas, projects, resources, even made an attempt to work together again… and I was always moved by your trust in me… You taught me strength without wanted to teach me anything… You took me to my very first yoga class… You were an example to follow at so many levels and added tremendous value to everyone who was lucky enough to know you… I’m forever grateful you were part of my life.”
