Since I met Gina at Mittye P. Locke Elementary she was always so sweet. Over the years Gina and I would chat on FB. I even bought a Teddy Ruxpin from her when she was selling her thrift finds. Gina always had this way of seeing the positive in everything around her. My prayers have been with you all. Love you Gina ❤️
