    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.

    I was so glad she was back on Pet Talk after being so ill a while back.

    It doesn't seem possible - Gini!

    Oh, my. This is such sad news. I noticed that her candles on the PT gratefulness.org page went missing several days ago. I'm sure that Corinna, Phred and Terry were ready to welcome her. Dear Gini.
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!

    Oh, Gini. So sorry to hear you have left us, although it is easy to imagine your joyous reunion at the Rainbow Bridge. {{{gentle hugs}}}

    Thank you for the update, Slick.
