Gabe had just started preschool and Veronica was working as a CNA and the Lead Clerk for Humboldt General Hospital Acute Unit and was on her way to becoming an RN. 

Veronica and Gabe enjoyed being in the company of their friends and family, especially when it included the outdoors, off-roading, swimming, and BBQs. They loved reading books and listening to music.
