Nicest person and very beautiful. Took great pride in her bike. Will be missed
Thursday, August 22, 2013
Words can not express the emptiness that I feel from the loss of one of my best friends, we have all lost a great friend, a person that was willing to help a troubled friend any way she could, a smile that lit up the room when she walked through the door, and a presence that would not go unnoticed. Riding in the wind with that right shoulder slightly dropped, and all that hair trailing behind her was a sight that all who rode with her are sure to remember. Gena we shared many laughs over the years and I hope that those memories never fade from my mind. Kenzie I am so sorry for your loss,
Thursday, August 22, 2013
Rest in peace, Gena. May God's Love heal this grieving family.

Gena was such a positive, bright light with energy that pulled you in. I enjoyed having her in our Dental Assisting Program and watching her success and passion grow. She will be missed dearly. God Bless

To Gena's entire family and friends...may you all find comfort in the many memories you have. I went to school with Gena and we were good friends in Jr. High. Sadly, I hadn't seen her in many years until a year ago, and she hadn't changed a bit ( well, her hair used to be blonde ). God bless you all
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
My thoughts and prayers go out to my cousin Mackenzie and the rest of my family and friends! This is such a tragic death to all that knew Gena! I grew up with her in Marquette Hgts. and then she became family! I loved riding with her every chance that I could!! Til I see ya on the other side girl, keep on riding in the wind...RIP Gena!!!

Having a hard time putting to words what I should say about losing one of my best friends. She taught me how to love your friends unconditionally. How to see the world in a whole different way, and enjoy every second. Every moment we spent together was always a blast. There will always be a hole in my heart now that your gone. I know that you will be with me always, and I will miss you always. God speed my friend, ride in the wind strong and proud. I love you Gena.

Can't express the emptiness we feel inside knowing we have lost a dear friend. Unfortunately our lives have taken different paths and our contact had become far and few but when we did get to hangout it was as if we hadn't missed a beat. Gone in presence, always in our heart. Ride free Gena!!!!
Wednesday, August 21, 2013
Gena, you were only in our lives for a very short while but we loved you as one of the family. Our prayers are with Donnie and your family. God bless.
