Friends and family flock to Long Island to mourn Gabby Petit

The line of mourners paid tribute to Gabby Petit on Sunday. Gabby Petit is 22 years old when her death on a cross-country trip triggered a search for her boyfriend. Some of the people who gathered in Holbrook, about 35 miles (56 km) east of New York City, were impressed by family, friends, colleagues, and even without knowing Petit. “She was a beautiful soul. She was full of energy and always smiled,” said Dessary Keef, a friend of Petit’s mother Nicole.
