Gabby Windey And Erich’s Hometown Dates

The Bachelorette dedicated Monday night's episode to Erich Schwer's father, Allan. During the episode, Gabby Windey met suitor Erich's family during hometown dates.

The visit to Bedminster, New Jersey, held extra weight because, as Erich, 29, told Gabby, 31, before the meeting, his dad Allan had been diagnosed with cancer years earlier. He was legitimately supposed to die three times.

While Allan made it to the hometown date and liked Gabby, according to the real estate analyst, he never got to see his son's season of The Bachelorette air. Allan died at age 65 on July 6, five days before season 19's premiere.

Thankful for everything you've done for me, Erich posted on Instagram on July 9. We are going to miss the hell out of you, Big AL. I love you so much, dad. As the hometown date aired, Erich shared another photo of his dad, captioned with one red-heart emoji.

Erich And Gabby On Their Hometown Date

Allan shared during the episode that he had been in the ICU with appendiceal cancer for about 40 days before Erich and Gabby showed up on their hometown date.

But I'm still here, Allan told Erich and ICU nurse Gabby. I'm happy. I'm positive, so that's good. I admire the ICU nurses. They're so sharp.

Allan revealed his latest scan showed that his cancer had returned. I had already gone through three rounds of chemo, and he informed Gabby. The first two did nothing. And the third one almost killed me.

Erich Appreciates His Dad During Hometown Date

Erich appreciated his dad's effort during the hometown date but noted how it challenged his father. During Monday's episode, Erich said in an on-camera interview that he's struggling to be there to meet Gabby and for it to be like a family thing.

He has to show my dad how much she means to me because it's really important. The date ultimately strengthened both Erich and Gabby's feelings for each other.

Gabby told the cameras that seeing Erich with his family deepened my feelings for him. Later, Gabby and Erich got some one-on-one time after the family meetup. I am falling for you, Gabby, Erich said. I think now I might even be falling in love with you.
