Gabby’s Monthly Memory

May is Here! 🪻

In May, Gabby spent time celebrating the milestones and special occasions that filled the month with love and joy. Despite facing her illness, she found moments of happiness and connection with her family during Graduations, Mother’s Day and lots of Fun in the Colorado sunshine 🌞.

Close up of Gabby's face. She is wearing a white graduation hat with a blue tassel hanging down one side of her face. She has slight smile but her face has a large shadow across it so it is hard to see too many details.
A black and white photo with a tinge of yellow green. Tammy, Gabby's mom, is behind her with her chin resting on Gabby's shoulder. Gabby does not look too happy in this moment, although it might have been a photo that was taken between smiles. This is a waist up shot and it looks like Tammy is kneeling or bending down. We see part of a tree and part of a brick building behind them.
A waist up shot of Gabby and her friend. They have their arms around each others shoulders. Gabby is wearing a pink hat and yellow dress. The friend is wearing all white with a white graduation hat. Gabby is intently looking at the camera and her friend is looking and smiling.
One adult and 4 kids are standing at the base of a large tree. They all have their arms around each other and are smiling. Gabby is one of the kids in the group. Behind the tree we see grass and what looks like the edge of a playground or mulch area.
