She set 2 pews in front of me. She ALWAYS, ALWAYS had a SMILE ☺️ on her face and a story to tell. What I remember most is when our 'Morning Glories' would meet once a month she was responsible for sharing something inspirational with our group. She was always prepared and I always enjoyed her share ☺️. Now when I look two pews in front of me I'm pretty sure I'm going to see Ms. Virginia standing there with a SMILE on her face telling her greatest story ever ❤️. Gone from our eyes, but, safe at rest in our 💕💝.

A sweet lady who will be missed. She loved her family and watching her play with Colton was always heart warming. And telling the morning glories that she had to pick up Mason from school, and she was always there at least an hour earlier, because she did not want to be late.

Virginia was one of the kindest, truest, Christian friends that a person could ask for. We worked together, traveled together and socialized together and she was the same all the time. She loved all her nieces and nephews and got excited every time there was a new addition to the family. She took great care of her mom and dad until they passed away. She loved her brothers and sisters and never said an unkind word about any of them. I will never forget Virginia. She is now with Jesus and that is most definitely where she belongs. See you again Virginia. This is one trip you took without me. Love you forever.
