Gina Rose Montalto was born April 22, 2003.

Our daughter, Gina Rose Montalto, was a special girl who melted each heart with an infectious smile that lit up a room. She was instant friends with everyone she met. She had a great sense of humor, and always made people laugh. She was a kind spirit, always eager to lend a helping hand.

She was a member of her school Color Guard – a team which she loved dearly, a Girl Scout, and active member in her local church. She was a talented artist who illustrated for a local magazine. She enjoyed volunteering and loved little kids. She loved to cook with her Father and her Grandmother, especially during the holiday season.

She was an avid reader and loved Harry Potter books, Hunger Games and Wonder Woman. She loved fashion and enjoyed shopping, spa days with Mom and NY Jets games with Dad. She played soccer and flag football in the local recreational leagues. She always earned the highest grades in school and had a bright future ahead of her. She was best buddies with her little brother and she loved her whole family especially all her cousins.

Gina will be missed not only by her family, but by everyone whose life she touched. We would like to thank law enforcement and the first responders for all the support they provided during the chaotic event. We want to thank everyone for the love, prayers and support we have received and we ask that everyone continue to pray for us and all the victims of this senseless tragedy. We are blessed to live in such a wonderful community.
