  7. Toni Lesowitz says:

    My fondest teenage memories are time spent with Gina: rockin’ out to Led Zeppelin, Lynryd Skynyrd, and the J. Geils Band; pushing her Volkswagen Beetle down Main Street when it stalled and working next to Gina and Mindy in Perry’s Wacky T-Shirt Shack. What I will remember most is Gina’s smile and infectious laugh, relentlessly positive attitude, strength, dignity and grace. She is an inspiration to us all and will be deeply grieved and missed. My sympathies to her family and friends. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace, my dear friend.

    The LHS Class of ‘78 Rocked a little harder with Gina as a class member and as our Mascot! Ascend that beautiful Stairway to Heaven Gina! The Angels Await.
    I just saw Gina at the pharmacy a couple weeks ago and all she talked about were her grandkids. Classmate, Neighbor and Friend, you’ll be missed.
