Dear Bob and family, Ginny was such a great lady, warm and welcoming. I remember her telling me about doing laundry when she was a young girl, outside and in large kettles! I planned to come to the service today, but Bryan's wife is in labor with their third baby. Condolences to you all. Janyce Phillips Eviston
