So many wonderful childhood memories of your mom and your dad and happy times at your house swimming and eating. All these years have passed and I still remember what a great cook she was. But my biggest memory is of the kindness Ginny always showed to our family. With deepest sympathy to you all.

Bob and I are so glad we got to visit with Ginny one last time. She was so bright and full of life. We took a lovely walk down memory lane with her. Sympathy to all who loved her.
