There is never a life without sadness, There is never a heart free from pain. If one seeks in the world for true solace, He seeks it forever in vain. So when to your heart comes the sorrow of losing some dear one you’ve known, Tis’ the touch of God’s sickle at harvest since HeContinue Reading

Gabi was wonderful and generous, selfless and full of affection and care for her loved ones, her friends and just about anyone in need of a shoulder to lean on. She was strong but so unassuming and it is her way of connection with you, her uplifting spirit that I will miss the most. I close my eyes and see her coming down the street with a smile on her face, ready to spread some kindness around. Rest in peace my dear Gabi.Our thoughts and prayers are with Stefan and Bebe and we're sending them our deepest sympathy. Dumnezeu sa o odihneasca in pace."Unwrap me from this white linen shroud And clothe me with leaves of jasmine and lilies; Take my body from the ivory casket and let it rest Upon pillows of orange blossoms. Lament me not, but sing songs of youth and joy; Shed not tears upon me, but sing of harvest and the wine press; Utter no sigh of agony, But draw upon my face with your finger the symbol of Love and Joy. Disturb not the air's tranquility with chanting and requiems, But let your hearts sing with me the song of Eternal Life; Mourn me not with apparel of black, But dress in color and rejoice with me; Talk not of my departure with sighs in your hearts; Close your eyes and you will see me with you forevermore." Kahlil Gibran

This is so sad to hear. Gabriela or "Gabi" as I knew her had a heart of gold. I worked with her for many years as a Clinique Beauty Consultant in NYC. She was a very hard worker, compassionate, always kind to me & to anyone she met, was proud of her heritage, & loved her family. My sincere condolences to her family. God has gained another angel.
