Friends a long time starting at St. Helens, Eastview, Carroll and in later years with our kids going to Leibold, Alter and St. Albert's. Always great conversations, lots of laughter. Will always appreciate how you were able to help me with getting my Son into St. Alberts as a transfer student. Rest In Peace Friend!

Ginny... you will always be a part of my sweetest memories from childhood. Riding bikes through Seville Estates, walking home from St. Helens because we missed the bus, yet again. Knee socks, CPO coats, chuka boots, ribbons tied in our hair, tetherball on the playground...Ringing doorbells at the homes of our childhood friends while running away and laughing with delight. Numerous sleepovers with all the Seville gang of girls. Cedar Point with your family. Your contagious laugh, your smile and your glow when sharing stories of friends and family. Thank you for the memories. You will be missed. Rest In Peace.
