Dear Friends, Virginia was one special lady. I will never forget her dropping by to welcome us to the neighborhood with a plate of warm cookies! Later she hosted a luncheon so I could meet all the ladies of McCook. She made me feel welcomed and special. She will be missed. May God give you strength, comfort and peace as only He can.
