Our thoughts & prayers are with your family. Ginger was a dear neighbor all these years & mom is sad to hear the news but happy for her at the same time being reunited with dear family she hasn’t seen in a while. Although we won’t be attending the service, our hearts will be right there. Ginger & Paul used to sit on their porch facing our house & wave & ‘visit‘ with mom & Joe sitting on our porch & visa versa. Then over the years after Paul & Joe passed, mom & Ginger would go to each other’s porches for a nice evening of chatting on the porch instead of their two men yelling across the street ( as mom & Ginger would say) like their silly men did all those years, lol. The other night mom was sitting out on porch & looked over where Ginger would sit & mom said with a big smile, ‘Bless her heart, Ginger is right where she wants to be sitting right next to her Paul again.’
