Uncle Bob and entire Connors family ,
We were so saddened to hear of Aunt Ginny’s passing . The Mead family extends condolences and prayers at this difficult time . Through the magic of Facebook I was able to see aunt Ginny surrounded by her family over the past couple of years . What a grand Lady she was . As a little girl I always remembered her as such a gentle spirit , especially when the Mead and Connors cousins got together . With 11 of us all running around she was the model of patience !
May your wonderful memories of her, help you in the coming days .

Dear Uncle Bob and family, I wanted to share my condolences on the passing of Aunt Ginny. You are in our prayers every day during this time of loss for all of you. I will always cherish the memory of getting Mom on Facetime with Aunt Ginny during her 90th birthday celebration. Seeing and talking to Aunt Ginny gave Mom a connection when she needed it.
