Virginia was a dear friend all through grade school and high school. We were both Presbyterian and shared church events from time to time. Also shared girl scouts together.

Virginia was my singing buddy in high school. She played for our choir. Our last song together was "Memories Are Made of This" at the senior prom.

We have continued to write Christmas cards through the years. Her family was always so welcoming . I'm so sad to read this and to say goodbye. We'll meet again someday. Maybe continue our song together

With prayers and love
