Peace to Ginger's family and hopefully comfort in the memories of her beautiful smile, amazing spirit and groovy soul.
I was oh so lucky to have Ginger as one of the first new friends I met when beginning my teaching time at P.N.G.H.S. While I taught there she was a constant ray of sunshine to me and many others. Any day that Ginger had a minute to stop by my classroom to share a hug, dance to the old rock n roll, or discuss my latest found beach treasure was a better day.
We always had fun; be it gearing up in our purple glitzy eyelashes for spirit day or looking at student and my personal artworks. Frequently we would just take a second to look at the sky and clouds showing off before weather came through, or to discuss where all the fancy dragonflies were disappearing to.
Ginger called me lori or miss lofton, but my favorite was her nickname of tinkerbell.....she was the only person to ever call me that and it was way precious to hear!!!
For a few years we were at different campuses, and I missed her BIG during this time. The last few years of my teaching career I moved to G.M.S and was overjoyed to be reunited with Ginger. What a special treat to see her on a daily basis again.
On occasions when I was worried about my children, we would share mom concerns and she would give me hugs and words for thought.
Although I told her often I don't know if she knew how much I loved her. I don't know if she knew that the pictures of herself she gave me (in my retirement card) were/are so precious to me. I do know how much I ache for another hug from my strong, lovely friend Ginger. peace baby.

Ms. Ginger quickly became my buddy when she started cleaning our Groves Middle School building. She cleaned my classroom and sometimes I'd chat with her while she worked. I enjoyed her witty personality and her fun-loving outlook on life. She also had lots of wisdom to pass on when she knew I needed a listening ear. It won't be the same without her and she will never be forgotten.
