Have only recently found out that Gabi had passed and it made me so sad to know that I had no idea. I knew Gabi from the early eighties in Bermagui and we were friends .... The sort that didn't always talk but picked up from where we left off. Gabi's beautiful calm nature was always a soothing presence in my hectic life, she did massage in my hairdressing salon and I always loved her passion for what she did and never ceased to amaze me with just how much she knew... about everything!!! So sorry we didn't get to say a proper goodbye although I am guessing that the last time we met you knew.... I hope in peace that you have found that everlasting love that you craved whilst alive and please Krnow you are forever in my heart Love Michelle
Gabi must have prompted me to google her now, after all these years... We both were broadcasters in the German radio programme at SBS in Melbourne, in the 8o's, and we became friends, visiting, celebrating, talking, until she vanished to some mysterious place in the "bush". I was still new in Oz then, and I did not quite understand who she was. And now her earthly journey has ended and new adventures await her in other realms... Blessings and love to you, Gabi, From Gudrun
We first met at your home during that much talked about Easter trip with Anne, her mum Doreen and Diarne, it seemed like we'd known each other forever. Swimming in the sea in Bermagui, the evenings serenaded by your frogs, your visits to Melbourne, curries and more curries, Anne and her stories, we laughed and we cried – how I will miss you. Your warmth, love, gentleness and generosity of spirit will always be with me. In my thoughts and in my heart always. love and hugs, Tam
A wonderful friend over the years. Remembering the good times and laughter we shared long ago. Will miss you Gabi, always, may God bless and keep You.
You cannot measure friendship by time I don't remember how long we where friends because our time together was always so busy, and interesting When I first met Gaby my first thoughts was what have I got myself into. t That day will stay with me for ever she lived her , life to the full always busy painting, writing, knitting and so much more. There was a time when Gaby tried to cure my fear of spiders, I told her that I would stay in the car and she could stay inside. Gaby's life in the bush was hard but she loved every minute with her pet snake, wallabies and birds she made her choice to live the way she did She was smart efficient dedicated to her work in the art of healing. I give thanks for the blessing she was to our family a great healer a good friend and we will miss her so much. To Gaby's family And her many friends here today, Gaby done it her way to the very end, So I ask you all to remember her the way Each of you knew her best. See you Gaby love Dawn.
A rare night out, without my little people. Spontaneous. The moon was on the rise. We'd been walking on the beach that evening, talking, before flinging ourselves into the surf. Whose idea was the champagne, mine of course. What better way to watch a harvest moon climb above the sea. So we took ourselves to the highest point in Bermi and positioned the car so that the music could waft out over the sea, talking and dancing through our bubbles as we waited for that symphony of light to rise up and bathe us in its glow. And finally, well after midnight. Still, transfixed, as the orange and crimson began to leach out onto the horizon. Filled with awe, again, that we should be so privelaged to see this timeless sight. Crimson skyline, orange, gold and then white, dazzling brilliant light, enormous, rising quickly up to the heights. And finally, soft, big and round, that vast ocean brought to light. No camera tonight. And finally we toodle offto our homes and to our beds, feeling like we'd done something really brilliant that night. Such are the simple things in life. I'll miss you Gab's. I hope its a really fantastic place where you've gone, because you deserve it. Love always, Liz, Belle & Riley.
After a massage with those strong fingers Gabi had, in the burning Australian sun and exacerbated by the massage oil used, never were the cool waters of the Blue Pool more welcome!
