Joyce, Donald and family...So saddened to read of "Miss" Virginia's passing. 92 years young is an accomplishment and the Lord showered her with grace to fall asleep and wake up HOME...a home where her beloved husband was waiting for her...where there is no sickness, pain or sorrow. She is young...she is well...she is whole again. Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies Proverbs 31:10
