Just heard the news today and I’m in shock and so saddened for everyone who knew Gina. She always had the biggest smile and fun spirit about her. I feel blessed to have had her as a client for many many years. You could tell she loved her family so much and lived her life to the fullest. She will be missed, and I’m grateful for the years I got to know her. This is definitely a reminder of how fragile life is. Prayers for comfort and peace for the family! Becky Butler, LMT Becky Butler, June 8, 2021 “We sing for her departure from this life and separation from us But also because there is a communion and a reunion For even in death we are not at all separated from one another Because we all run the same course And we will find one another again in the same place We shall never be separated for we live for Christ And now we are united with Christ As we go toward him we shall all be together in Christ" St Symeon’s Anthem Dearest Gina You will have the grandest view from your newest abode, where with saints and angels and the company of heaven you may remember and intercede for us just as we will always remember and pray for you God bless and keep you tucked safely in Christ’s own eternity until the dawning of the soon coming day Tim Baca, June 8, 2021 I was so shocked and saddened to hear about Gina. We have such fond memories of her from our dance days. Sending my love and prayers to Julee, Joey and her family. This was way too soon. May God’s love and care for you carry you through. Laura Lee Hailey , May 26, 2021 Ms. Gina was the first person that we met at the studio 18 years ago, she was so sweet. She explained that they had a teacher who spoke Spanish for Debbie, she saw her all excited and she called her “tiny ballerina” and she made her day. I had the opportunity to have long chats with her during my long waiting on dance days, she taught me so many things about being a dance mom. Told me that the perfect mother doesn’t exist. I’m so grateful for her genuine love for my girls. So many times I called her letting her know that I would be a little late on Saturday’s because of work and she would feed my girls multiple times and wait with them!! She will be so missed, she was the sunshine of the studio, always smiling with a wonderful sense of humor. We are praying for peace for her family! Rest In Peace Ms Gina. We love you.

Love Presleigh and Kinzley Schmidt Karissa Castillo, May 23, 2021 Gina, you will be greatly missed by family and friends. You shared a comforting smile each time we visited the studio. You gave the students and their families a positive energy that was very welcome to receive. I will always remember and laugh the way you patiently encouraged, but kept those dance dads in line, as you taught them choreo. That was always one of the biggest hits of our shows! You never missed a beat watching over the books of the studio and helping with all the various ways a business needs to run. And you encouraged me go get that mammogram done too! We love you, Mrs. Gina. We will miss you greatly. Dana Crigger, May 23, 2021 David and Family, We are so sorry for your loss.
