I am saddened by the loss of our friend and colleague Gabi. She was strong and fearless. She was a great person to work with.

Dear Andreas, Jukka and Lily, Our deepest condolences for your loss. Our best memories of Gabi were times spent together in our backyards, with lively conversations, stories and laughter. Always remembered, forever missed! Love Mike, Judi and Brandon
I am deeply saddened by the loss of Gabi. She was such a nice, friendly and kind person. I was lucky to meet her and work with her. Even though gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. My sincere sympathy to her family.
Andreas, Lilly, and Jukka, I had the pleasure of working with Gabi a few years ago and during that time I was inspired by her passion and determination. She was a remarkable woman who gave so much of herself to support others. I don't know you but I feel like I have a sense of who you are because she shared many stories about your family life, and I was always struck by how much she cared for all of you. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. You will be in my thoughts and I will always remember Gabi.
Lieber Andreas, lieber Jukka und liebe Lilly, ich möchte euch mein herzliches Beileid aussprechen und euch viel Kraft für die kommende Zeit wünschen. Gemeinsam werdet ihr das schaffen, da bin ich mir ganz sicher. Gabi, euer Mom hat es jetzt endlich hinter sich und muss keine Schmerzen mehr erleiden. Das ist das (einzig) Gute daran. Ich hoffe sehr, euch bald mal wieder in Gabi´s Heimatstadt Bamberg zu treffen und vor allem auch in den Arm nehmen zu dürfen. Mir fehlt Sie auch sehr... Alles Liebe, Mut und Kraft wünscht Euch Steffi
I am so sorry to hear this sad news. Gabi was an active member of the London & Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership and she was genuinely committed to making our community more welcoming for newcomers. On behalf of the LMLIP, I would like to extend my condolence to Gabi's family and friends.

Lieber Andreas, lieber Jukka liebe Lilly, erst heute haben wir vom Tod von eurer lieben Gabi erfahren. Es tut uns furchtbar leid. Wir sind sehr betroffen und möchten euch unser herzliches Beileid aussprechen. Gabi war für uns immer eine liebe Lauffreundin. Oft erinnern wir uns noch an die vielen Nordhessen-Cup-Läufe die wir gemeinsam bewältigen haben. Wir werden immer in Erinnerung behalten. Alles Liebe für euch Reinhild, Horst und Tane Liese aus Kaufungen.
Dear Andreas, Lilly, and Jukka, we are so saddened to learn of Gabi’s passing. We will keep her in our memories as the strong, kind, and family-oriented person that she was. Our heartfelt thoughts and sympathies are with you and your family during this difficult time. David & Vanessa
Dear Andreas, Jukka and Lilly, To say that we will miss our Gabi is an understatement. She simply cannot be replaced. She was a remarkable person we were blessed to have in our lives and she will continue to be with us in spirit. She has left her imprint on us - for which we are grateful. With our love, Helen, David, Alexander and Nicholas
Dearest Andreas, Jukka & Lilly, We are so incredibly sorry to hear about the passing of Gabi/deine Mami. Our hearts go out to you. We send you strength and peace and love. She was an inspiration. Hold on tightly to the memories and the gifts of life and love she has given you. Vanessa, Stephen, Anikah & Mikah
Andreas, Jukka and Lilly Thinking of all of you during this difficult time. I have always admired Gabi’s strength and determination, especially as she faced her cancer diagnosis. I will miss our conversations on the sidelines of the basketball court. I know from these conversations of her true love and pride for her family. Lilly...Lauren sends hugs and wishes she could see you in person to express her sympathy. Jukka...we will be donating to your fundraising campaign. I admire your courage and commitment to help others and to honour the memory of your mom. Cancer is a “beast” that has impacted far too many lives, including our own. God bless all of you.
So early - you've gone. We hoped and prayed that this moment will come much later. It hurts! We always keep in mind her wonderful life, her tremendous spirit and strength, the joy she brought to us and the love she gave. Her spirit live on in the hearts of us. In love Kirstin, Uwe, Marie Zoe & Sarah Lucia
Saddened to hear the loss of a strong activist and voice for those who felt at time they did not have a voice. She was strong as she was passionate...she will be missed.
