Because our mothers were good friends when we were young, it seems I've know Ginny Jo forever. My sister and I spent a lot of time at their family home along with her, her sisters and her cousins. I have very fond memories of those times. Please accept my sincerest condolences on your loss. May God bring you comfort and peace in the coming days. God bless you all........

Ginny was a classmate way back in the day as well as becoming my sister in law at one time. Always good memories with her and never heard an unkind word. May God be with her family as I know she will be missed.
