LaShon,

Sometimes in life you meet someone who you just know will stick with you forever. Someone who's compassionate insights and imparted wisdom will guide you forward with confidence at times of uncertainty. Some may call this person a mentor. Some may call her an advisor or sage. Many may be lucky enough to call her a friend. No matter how you knew Gina, your life was always improved by having her in it.

To so many young students and new professionals, Gina served as a graduate school extender. She understood, like no one else, the nurturing care that new mental health professionals require as they venture into the field. Gina seemed never to forget how important this time in a professionals life was and what was required to make it a success. No one asked her to shepherd this flock. No one paid her extra for this gift. She gave it away freely, and assumed this responsibility with an earnest gusto.

As a mentee of Gina's, the first thing she had you do was re-read the APA and ACA Code of Ethics, tomes from which she would frequently quote. The imprinting of always acting in an ethical manner, always doing the right thing, always taking care to dot your I's and cross your T's was not just an academic exercise, it was intended to provide you with a righteous shining armor to be donned in the darkness, when moral light was required. Gina is the angel on your shoulder whispering down the devil; an island in a sea of confusion and occasional madness.

The obvious motivations for Gina's careful considerations were the people she served in her daily work. For 30 years Gina devoted her immense talents and incalculable compassion to those in our world with the greatest needs and the fewest resources. The respect and kindness with which she treated those in her care was truly an inspiration. She seemed to be at her most genuine self when interacting with those in need. Carl Rogers personified; unconditional positive regard writ large.

Like so many, I am heartbroken at the news of Gina's passing. Though she would humbly deny it, we owe her so much. The world has lost an incredible woman much too soon, but the countless lives she has touched both professionally and personally are a testament to her ever-presence. There is no doubt that her goodwill and generosity will emanate forever forward. Thanks Gina B. We love you.

Gina was one of the finest young people I was privileged to work with many years ago at Reading Success. I enjoyed watching her grow into a remarkable woman. She will be missed.

Deepest Sympathies to Gina's family. I worked with Gina for several years at GRH-Augusta. I will always remember her as a consummate professional, a good friend with a ready smile, offering words of encouragement and having a great sense of humor. The world was a better place for having her in it. May she rest in peace.

To the Bennett family. May God bless you during this difficult time. I did not know Gina was a Harlem High School graduate. I'm a Harlem graduate as well. I worked at ECRH as also. Gina was a nice person. I know she will missed. I also went to school with her late brother. My heart goes out the Bennett Family you are in my prayers.

My dearest apologies for your loss. In times of distress many people don't want to mourn or cry because its shows weakness. In the Bible it says " Happy are those who mourn, since they will be comforted" (Matthew 5:4). As you see here it's does not show weakness and it's a natural way to feel after something devastating.
