Gina was my 'work wife'. Some of my favorites times of the week was hanging out in our office, talking for hours about everything. We shared so many stories and laughs. She is the reason I decided on getting my Harry Potter tattoo after our other friends teased me, because she knew it would make me happy... And it does. I'm grateful for having her in my life and I'm definitely a better person because of it. Though, I have to admit, our office is lonely without her.

Please know that Gina was one of the nicest people I have ever known. We worked together several years ago and stayed in touch. She cared deeply for friends and family. Everyone near her felt that support. My heart goes out to you, her family, Rick, and the children. I know that your heart is breaking. What a special, special person. With love and prayers, Rebecca Fugate, Asheville, NC

I was very lucky to have Gina as one of my best friends in high school. I have many precious memories of us growing up together that I will always remember. I am very thankful to have spent time with her during such a special time in our lives.

I just heard of Gina's passing and had to extend my sincere condolences. Gina was a lovely lady - a caring spirit and a fiesty personality. I only had the opportunity to see her a couple of times a year and only for the last few years. But she made a lasting impression on me. I will remember her laugh, her joy and her wonderful spirit. I am glad I got to know her!

Gina was a great person . She always knew how to make you smile . She was never rude and cared about everyone around her . We had lost touch over the years but when I spoke with her a couple of mouths ago it was like we were back in 1988 all over again . This world needs more people like her she was a class act and truly a great lady.

I would like to say a few things about Gina that I didn't have the nerve to stand up and say durning the service. I was not close to Gina as some were, she was an old friend and classmate but after my school days we didn't talk or hang out. I did have the chance to message with her on facebook. We talked about old childhood memories and how she was grateful for the out pouring of love and support towards her. The last thing Gina said to me was, God bless and sending love your way.There is not a lot I can say about Gina that you don't already know. Yes she had a beautiful and infectious smile. She was a very sweet, loving, and a kind hearted person. She was beautiful inside and out, an amazing person. In life I have met many people in my travels and I have to say Gina Perry was one of the kindest people I have ever met in my life. The one thing said about Gina durning the service that resonates with me the most was she was genuine. Gina was genuine and she was the real deal. She never wavered in who she was. I'm glad I got to know Gina for the short time that I did. I know she will be missed by many. My prayers go out for you. God bless. R.I.P. Gina Perry.
