Ginger French was an inspiration to many. No matter the trials and tribulations in her life, Her faithfulness and devotion to the Lord never waivered. She was the shoulder and hug most would turn to for comfort and her answer to any problem was to hand it all to the Lord. She had a love for all plants and flowers. One of her favorite past times was being barefoot in flower beds. There was no weed she couldn't bring back to life as she saw the beauty in everything and everyone. Her passion was to visit Nursing Homes to spend time with people and share God's word. To show each and every person she could that they were not alone and they were loved. Ginger was the most loving, caring and selfless woman most of us will ever know and although she was small, She was also the mightiest and strongest woman you could meet. She was a member of North Jacksonville Baptist Church in Jacksonville, FL.
