On Wednesday, Gabbi posted a heartfelt tribute to wife Priscilla as she wrote, “Our love has crossed many lifetimes. We have fought battles to reach each other… and in other lives to break away from each other. We have waged wars in the name of our love, lost our own life or lives defending it, and been separated by insurmountable distances and odds. Somehow though, in every life, we find each other and our physical and ethereal bodies unite as one soul, as it was meant to be. I love you P, until my dying breath...and then I will find you again.”
