I hope your at peace with the lord and I pray your not in pain no more. I believe that your in a better place now. I will cherish all the memories and times we shared.

I have enjoyed getting to know Gina at family gatherings and celebrations since her niece, Angela Kirby married my son, John, sixteen years ago. We have often shared baby sitting duties with the little Bierman's. I think of her as an excellent baby wrangler who could hold an active baby in one arm while taking care of other chores with the other while remaining cheerful and good natured. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

I'm not going to say goodbye Auntie Gina, you will always be here with me in my heart. I am so proud to be your name sake and I'm so grateful for all the stories you shared with me about my dad. I will never forget dancing with you in the kitchen to Elvis. A beautiful soul gone to soon. Give my dad a hug for me. I will miss you dearly, until we meet again.
