TUCSON (KOLD) - Gabe Zimmerman would have just turned 31 on Friday.  In tribute, colleagues of the aide to Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords posted a YouTube tribute to him.  It's a collection of photos featuring Zimmerman at work and at play with family and friends before he was killed in the January shootings which also injured Giffords.

A post on Giffords' Facebook page reads: "We are thinking of our friend and colleague, Gabe Zimmerman, who would have turned 31 today. Though cut far too short, we honor a life well-lived. Our thoughts are with his family."
