Only days ago, Gabe's husband Justin made an update on her health situation. She was hospitalized after her liver stopped functioning. Her condition worsened and the doctors advised the folks to take her home. They wanted her final moments to be comfortable.

Justin's spirit must have broken into pieces as he requested Gabriele well-wishers on Instagram:

I wanted to let you all know while she is still alive so you can send her one last message here or on her wall or on her phone before she heads up to heaven.
