Gabriel Antonio Herrera was our 17-year-old miracle baby from Albuquerque, NM. He gained his angel wings and went to be with our Heavenly Father on Monday, September 27, 2021. Gabriel was full of life and brought joy to everyone he met. He always had the biggest smile that would light up the room. He would give you the biggest bear hugs and would not let go until he was ready. He loved sharing his toys, especially his bears and blankets with you. He liked listening to his radio, especially Spanish and country music. He would always dance every time he heard a good song. He was a joy to be around. He was very expressive, even though he could not talk. He was always able to let you know how he felt. Gabriel will be truly missed and will be forever in our hearts.
