Virginia was the family matriarch. She loved nothing better than having the family gathered around.

Grandmothers are just like an angel for each and every child. The love, care, and blessings showered by them on their grandchildren are incomparable to anyone else’s. They love us for ourselves and are always there to guide us with their wisdom. “When things are not going well, call your grandmother” That was our Virginia.
