Dear Stingray Family,
It is with a very heavy heart that we share the sad news that one of our Stingray swimmers, Gabriella Reece, passed away late last week. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for Gabby's family, especially her grandmother "Nana" Barbara. Gabby was a Stingray for many years and Barbara has volunteered many hours serving the team. Gabby loved being a Stingray. She will be very missed.
A celebration of life will be held in Gabby's honor this Saturday, April 10th at 11:00 am at First Baptist Church on the island. The address 1600 S. 8th Street, Fernandina Beach, FL. It is bittersweet to be celebrating Gabby's life at this location as this is also the location of many of our swim team banquets.
Barbara is requesting all who know her to please attend Gabby's celebration of life this Saturday. It would mean so much to Gabby's family to see Stingrays in attendance. Forever a Stingray!!
