Gabby Petito’s mother shares message after visiting memorial in Florida

The parents of deceased Gabby Petito, Joe Petito and Nichole Schmidt, visited North Port, Florida, over the weekend to take home mementos from a makeshift memorial for their daughter at city hall.

“Goodbye Florida …thank you for showing us so much LOVE!” Nichole Schmidt tweeted Sunday with a photo of a cloud in the shape of a heart. The city is expected to take down the memorial on Tuesday but will put a permanent memorial bench in its place.

The Petito family on Saturday retrieved a handmade plaque calling Gabby “America’s daughter.”
