Family, friends and community members gathered for a memorial walk and celebration of life in honor of Ana Gabriela Cabrera Lopez on Oct. 23, 2020, in Athens, Georgia. Cabrera Lopez was a former worker at UGA’s Brumby Hall, and she passed away earlier this year due to COVID-19.
The walk began at Brumby Hall after a few words by organizers, and it continued to the Holmes-Hunter Academic Building on North Campus where a banner of artwork by local artist, Kimberly Perez, was raised in her memory. The walk was then continued and completed at Casa Amarilla where an altar was set up and guests enjoyed music, food and coffee for the rest of the evening.
“It’s very heartbreaking remembering it all, but it’s so nice to see people showed up, and were here and were very supportive. We appreciate it so much,” cousin Lili Orozco said.
