To the Dear Family and Friends of Dr. Gina, My deepest condolences on the loss of your Dear Mom and a great friend to all of us who knew her. Dr. Gina took care of my parents and myself in the Scranton office and I continued when she transferred to Carbondale because she was such a kind, caring lady. She always made me laugh during my visits and kept me updated on the great things her children were doing through the years. Jennifer and Christopher were truly the heart and soul of everything Gina did. I will miss seeing her, may she now rest in peace. Sincerely, John.

My name is Rosalie. I have been a patient of Gina's for many years. There never was a visit that Gina did not smile, we told stories, and laughed out loud many times. Gina was to me a very special person to have known. My sympathy goes out to her children which were the "light of her life". She could not say enough about them. She was so PROUD of Jennifer and Christopher. May God give both of you strength to carry on through life without your MOM and NEVER FORGET HER. Her passing came too soon. All my blessings - ROSALIE

My sincerest sympathies to your entire family, most especially Jennifer and Christopher. I was a patient of Gina's and have a daughter Jennifer's age. We would always talk about our children and I just want you to know that your mother adored you. She was a wonderful woman and you should be very proud. She will always be with you. I pray for you during this difficult time.
