Brandon N Kristen Conner is organizing this fundraiser.
On January 6th, 2018, our beloved Gina Cloud left this earth and went home. With her, she took a small piece of everyone that has ever known her. Anyone that knew Gina can attest that she had a heart as big as her laugh! Her kindness and willingness to help anyone that needed it showed how big her heart really was. Gina was an incredible mom, daughter, sister, and aunt. We all love her so much more than we could have ever expressed to her. We are all deeply saddened by this loss. Gina struggled her entire life with illness, but she never let that affect her spirit. Pain, or no pain, she always had a smile on her face, and made sure that everyone else was ok before anyone ever had a chance to make sure that she was!
Over the past few days, I have gotten to see first hand how many people she touched on a daily basis. I have had countless messages, and comments about how amazing she was. While her family knows just how amazing she was, it is incredible to hear it from so many different people. We thank everyone for their support during this hard time.
Gina left behind an AMAZING son, Peyton. He has been incredibly strong throughout this hard time, and we want to make sure he has the best life possible without his beautiful Momma there to help. He has a great support system behind him in his family, but we can only do so much. We are asking for any help possible to make sure Peyton is taken care of going forward. Whether it is money for clothes, school books, a new car (for when he gets his license,) a college fund, or anything else he may need going forward. We truly appreciate any help for him possible.
This was a difficult decision for us to create a GoFundMe because we weren't sure how Gina would feel about this. After much consideration, we decided that she would want to make sure that Peyton is taken care of, first and foremost. Peyton was her world, and she would do anything to make sure he was taken care of, so that's what helped us make this decision. All of the funds raised will go to Peyton directly, with his grandmother and grandfather handling the funds. We genuinely appreciate your consideration in donating to Gina's memorial fund. It means so much to us all.
Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers. Gina would be over the moon at the outpouring of love and compassion received by everyone. She would not want us to be sad over this. She would tell us that she would "whoop our butts" if we didn't stop crying over her being gone. In the days leading up to her going home, she kept telling me that she was strong, and not to worry about her. It was impossible to not worry about her, but that's the type of woman she was. She always put eveyone elses needs before hers. She was an absolutely amazing woman, through and through. We are all fortunate to have known her.
Gina, we love you so much. There will be a day when we meet again. Until that day, we will all live in your memory.
Love you more.
