Sorry to hear of Ginny's death, but on the other hand what a nice long life she had. Bright, radiant, full of fun and a real sweetheart. She will be missed; and the memories are wonderful.

I have so many memories of the special times shared on Ginny's front porch. We spent hours swinging together. I always felt sad that my own children did not have a special adult like Ginny in their lives. She was such a blessing! My deepest sympathy to the family.

Sincere Sympathy. Our love and prayers are with you.

Ginny was such a good friend to our family. I'll never forget her zest for life, spitfire attitude,love of golf, and constancy in good and bad times. I still use her recipes for sugar cookies and baked beans. (She gave my Dad the WHOLE recipe for both and he passed it on)Remember the lessons learned and God give you peace.
