    Gini

    I'm posting this with tears running down my face. I've just received an email from Gini's neighbour that our dear Gini passed away yesterday, Nov. 23 at 1:45 pm after fighting emphysema for the last 3.5 years. She died peacefully and seemingly not in pain. I had absolutely no idea that she was in hospital. I would have travelled down to LA to say good-bye.

    I'm sure she received a standing ovation from Phred and the PT furry ones. That's all I can post for now.

    RIP dear friend.

    Oh dear! Thanks so much for letting us all know! Emphysema is such a horrible disease, and so sad. I am glad her neighbors contacted you, and you could let us know. So sad, so sad. We will always miss her!

    I hope she was met with a parade of firefighters and all the beloved Pet Talkers - Phred, Molly, Corinna, Jonza, and all the others, and the orange kitties I bet formed their own tribute welcome to her.

    Gentle Gini ~ You will be missed.

    Some may not know this, but Gini would send me notes with positive stories for me to share in the Good Guys thread. I don't know why she didn't want to post them herself. That was our Gini.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family.

    I'm in shock. Thanks for letting us know about this. I'm so thankful to have met her when she hosted her famous LA PT BBQ's. She was such a wonderful and caring person. RIP Gini.

    I am pretty speechless at the moment.

    Gini was an original.

    RIP Friend.
