In Memory of Gisela Staino - "Gigi"

On Saturday, January 28th before midnight, our dearest friend Gisela was a victim of a hit and run fatality in Sarasota.  The coward who did this is still being sought by the police.   Gisela was a beautiful kind soul whose smile would light up the room.   She stayed positive during difficult times and helped many when they needed it the most.   A bright young life,  gone too soon.   Gigi will be greatly missed.  
On behalf of Gisela and her family in Argentina, we have opened this page.  It was Gisela's wish to return to her country.   She will be laid to rest peacefully, alongside her beloved parents.  
The funds collected  will pay for her funeral expenses and documentation needed to return Gigi to Argentina with her most personal belongings.  Darla has been lovingly adopted here by a good friend where she will be well cared for.  If you are one of the many who Gisela  touched with love and kindness,  please donate to help her get back home.   Rest in peace Gigi ~ 1[phone redacted].
