I first met Gabriel when my husband was in serious condition in the hospital.
Gabriel walked in and set to work. His calmness comforted me. I think Gabriel would have sat there all day, letting my husband and I pat him, if that's what we needed.
Gabriel was born to be a therapy dog. He worked in nursing homes, hospitals, schools, libraries, and universities. He helped everyone feel better.
He and his mom Sally became close friends.
Sadly, cancer took Gabriel.
RIP Gabriel. We love you. You will be terribly missed.
