    Dear Vicky and Judy, She loved to have her whole family around her and I am truly sorry for your loss. I’ll always remember her sunbathing in the back yard. Standing holding on to a chair to get the back of her legs. She was a wonderful lady and I am going to miss her. Sincerely, Pat

    My prayer for comfort for all of you as you spend thesee days mourning Ginny! She seemed to be always there for each of you as I could see. Hopefully you will have many smiles and good memories of her as the days pass. She was strong friendly and fun to be around, I refer to many years ago, when Vicki was 15 and a live in babysitter and friend and lived with us in I a purple room!

    Ginny, you will be missed. Judy, you have the same spunk and humor, like a mini Ginny. Judy, you and your brothers and sister are a reflection of her life, her humor, and her smile. She will crack them up on the other side. Hugs and gods speed Ginny.

    Russ, Trish and family,
    So very sorry to hear about the sudden loss of your Mom. Thinking of you guys at this sad time. Even though we didn’t know your Mom, it sounds like she was a lot like you Russ–or you were a lot like her…besides the friendly & fun personality, I can totally see the resemblance. Deepest sympathies.
    Love, Nancy & Bill
