Today the world lost a beautiful soul. Sweet Gigi (formerly Peaches), who was an alumna of FBV, crossed the Rainbow Bridge today with her loving family right by her side.

Here are some words from her family:

“Miss Gigi has been fighting very aggressive Mast cell tumors since July of 2017. We tried surgery and chemo and nothing was effective but she has been a fighter! We were discharged to hospice care about 3 weeks ago with pain meds and she has been getting Pup Cups at Dairy Queen, extra treats and peanut butter by the spoonfuls. Today she woke up and she just is completely uncomfortable, swollen, bruised abdomen. We have made an appointment with her Vet today for this afternoon and will wait until school lets out, so the kids can give her hugs and kisses before she crosses the rainbow bridge. We are devastated. We know St. Francis is waiting for her when she goes to heaven, and have comfort in knowing that we gave her all of our heart, love, hugs, kisses and every attention a little princess could want. Her grandparents will be with us as well— as she got to go on car rides with Meemaw and Grandaddy every Thursday and always looked forward to it!”

You’re an angel now Gigi. Run Free.
