I am Gabby. I am 18 years old and I am currently a freshman in college.
About my Loss:
My brother, Evan, was 9 years old when he passed on April 24, 2012. He was at basketball practice, and at the end of practice he collapsed. It was totally unexpected. He had been healthy and never complained of being sick or anything. Evan was an amazing person, and even though there was a huge age difference between us, we were so close. Evan was a huge huge HUGE sports fan, he knew every stat about every sport. You could ask him just about anything, and more than likely he would know the answer.
This has been the toughest time of life and I miss him so much every single day. I always wonder WHY? But there is not a day that goes by that I wish I could just hug him and tell him I love him.

This year she would be 52…It is increasingly hard to imagine, through all of the iterations possible, what she could have become, what was to be her (significant) impact on the world.That being said, things, emotions, have largely settled down since I committed a potential version of what could have…See More
