The Sanchez family were our neighbors in Ukiah for 12 years. When we first moved there the kids were all young, and me having young kids as well, we became one big family. Gina was 11 years old when I first met her, she was such a sweet, kind hearted kid. As she became an adult, we became friends. After moving out of Ukiah 20 years ago, Gina was one of the only people that I kept in contact with. I watched her grow into an amazing woman, and one of my closest friends. She fought till the end, with everything she had, and still kept that smile, even though she was in great pain. I still can't fathom that cancer has taken such a beautiful person out of our lives. I will miss her so very much and can't wait to see her again. Don't worry GiGi I will do the next Hot Chocolate 5k not the 15k, haha for you.

I met Gina when I joined Anytime Fitness. She was so kind, welcome and helpful. She was just the kind of person that made it very easy to ask when you needed help. The longer I got to know her, the more I could see what a wonderful person was. My condolences to her family and friends. She will be so missed.... Barbara J Riley
