I remember Ginger as a solid member of the Single-Aires class and a caring friend to all. My sympathies especially to her brother Jesse, whom I knew well. I regret that I was out of town for the memorial service.

Dear Bill and Ben, Since I met you in the hallway of St. Joseph'd intensive care, all of you have been in my thoughts and prayers. I was surprised to learn of Ginger's illness and so sorry to hear that she has passed away.
Ben was such a lovely student in our Travis second grade, and I will always remember you, Bill, and Ginger as loving, supportive parents.
May your beautiful memories of life with Ginger sustain you through the sad days ahead, and may the future bring healing and happiness for you both.
Mrs. Margaret Blackstone

Dear Bill and Ben,
Your Ginger was one of the first Shell Oil people that I worked with at One Shell Plaza when I was transferred there in the 1980's. She was a wonderful person, energetic, funny and always one to offer encouragement. I am so very sorry for your loss and know you have many memories of such a loving Mom and wife.

I am very blessed to have worked with Ginger at Equiva Trading (Shell entity) and we have been friends ever since. I loved Ginger's laugh and her zest for life. She loved her family, her friends, and most importantly, her Lord. She will be missed very, very much. My prayers are with Bill, Ben and the rest of her family. God bless.

Ginger was one of the first people I met when I joined the Adventuring Single-Aires class at First United Methodist Church is the mid-1970s. She was a great leader in the class and at Lakeview Methodist Assembly on a couple of retreats we attended as a class. I was present at her and Bill's wedding in 1980. My prayers and sympathy are with you, Bill and Ben.
