Ginny and her husband Stewart "took me in " when I was a greenhorn just out of college. They were so good to me and I have many wonderful memories while in their home. What a testimony they were living God's love to me and so many others. The children were little at the time ...tremendous family. I will long remember her and the family. It was a privilege to know her.

I am very sorry to read about Ginny's passing. She will always be very special to me. She introduced me to Emerson Hill Community Group which I loved. She and her husband were good friends to us when I lived in Weare. My deepest sympathy to the family.

I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Nelsons passing. I remember the Nelson family from the Contoocook Baptist Church. The Connors sat on the right hand side and the Nelsons in the center near our seats. God Bless each one in the family.
