In April, Prenell posted in celebration of Gabrielle’s birthday, writing, “I love you so much and I’m grateful God has allowed you another year. I’ve watched your growth on all levels and you’re a great mother, wife, and my best friend.” 

“I’m proud to be your husband because you are a woman of class, discretion, integrity, and most importantly…you’re a woman of God,” Prenell’s post continued. “I pray God continues to allow you many more birthdays because I honestly do not know what I’d do without you.”
