In memory of Gabriel Debono

Remembering Gabe

Friday 28th May
In 2012 on a full moon while we waited at home for the next day when Gabriel would be home to celebrate his brother's upcoming  birthday, someone, somehow hit him with their car as he crossed the road and then drove off leaving him critically injured. We and other family and friends rushed to his side but we lost him that night, the whole world lost him. We have never found out who took our beautiful boy's life from him, who took him from us, who took a talented caring future doctor from the world but as flowers began to arrive at our home in the days that followed, his brother and sisters suggested we ask for money for a charity instead of the flowers. Immediately we decided on MSF as Gabriel had mentioned that one day he would have liked to have worked for them as a doctor and we had been long time admirers of the courageous work they do all over the world. The funds poured in immediately. It helped us feel a little stronger at the time and since then we have been overwhelmed by, and so proud of, the generous donations from Gabriel's family and friends. We will try, for as long as we can, to honour his life and the work of MSF in this way. He will always be a shining star in our souls reminding us to laugh and love as he always did, helping us to find some way to live without him.

Thank you to my Supporters

In honour of Miriam and Nick's wedding, we wanted to give a gift in your memory darling boy. What a joy it would have been to have you with them to celebrate - dancing the night away. You always made each of us feel very special to you - Mimi carried your love with her darling. Mum and Dad

Dear darling Barb, My heart goes out to you for the losses that you have endured - Gabe, Ruthy, your lovely little poodle who kept Ruthy company as well as spreading her love in your home. And through it all, Barb, you are the most gracious and giving person. Thank you, too, for the love you have shared with Mum - she adores you and you help her to feel special
