When I learned of Gia's passing, I cried, for although I never knew her, I felt like the world had lost a precious light... all too tragically... all too soon... For Gia exuded a poetic, timeless, radiant beauty, and a warmth and profound sense of empathy that imbued her “aura" and transcended the mere limits of a TV screen.
I know her family and friends will deeply miss Gia's gentle loving spirit, her laughter, exuberance and smiles.
In your profound loss and grief, know that others hold you close to their hearts, and that the lives that Gia touched and the joyous memories she gifted the world with, will never be forgotten.
Though Gia's life here on Earth was so sadly short, her soul and spirit shine brightly beyond where she is very, very much alive, in a realm of glorious beauty embraced by the love of God.
Many, many, blessings to Donna, and all of Gia's family and friends.
