Gabrielle’s siblings mourned their loss on Instagram. Older sister Alexandria wrote, “I am in shock and have no idea how to process the wave of emotions I am experiencing. 22 is too young to die.” Her younger brother Simon posted, “Today is the hardest day ever, I’m confused, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m just sad just really sad. Gabri I miss you so much I miss you like no other we were best friends we had a good bond and now your not here anymore. I love you Gabri and I know you’ll know that forever.”
