My heart breaks for you Chaddy, and for all of Gina’s family. Although I haven’t seen your mom for a number of years now, nothing can break the bond we established over the many years we sat in the bleachers together watching you and Johnny work your magic, striking out batter after batter! She loved to share stories of her children, and later her grandkids, and the antics they were up to. I remember running into you at John’s house Chad, around the time you got engaged, and you were telling me, with great pride, that Gina had quit smoking. I can only imagine the strength that took, after all those years! Hold tight to your memories, speak of her often, and gain strength in knowing just how much she loved her family! Hugs to Ted, Tracie, Martin! May she Rest In Peace! ❤️

While we haven't been able to see Gina much in the last few years, we were blessed to spend the day with Gina and Ted two summers ago. The joy of that day is carried with us now. We send our love and hope that the friends and family surrounding you now will provide you with some comfort. Our hearts are with you, Ted, Tracie, Martin and Chad... and everyone in the family.
