I am so sorry for the loss of Aunt Virginia. I have memories of her laughing and joking with my dad and mom when she visited us in Des Moines, IA. I'm sorry I wasn't able to see her more frequently. Praying for God to comfort you all in this very difficult time and the days ahead.

When I was a little girl, I remember my Aunt Virginia as a tall, beautiful woman. I remember her in her beautiful summer dresses. This was before she was married. We were always excited when we knew she was going to come to visit. When my dad would tease her, she would laugh and call him a name of endearment. It was sweet. I wished I had kept in touch with her.
I love you Aunt Virginia.
