I will miss you so much Aunt Virginia! I have so many great memories with you. You and Uncle Bill had my army outfit custom made for my kindergarten picture. I loved it!
Amarige Perfume by Givenchy was your favorite. It takes certain personality and/or chemistry to wear Amarige. It was you.
I always made sure you had plenty in stock.
All the summers I spent in Clarksville and you getting a pool for us to swim in. The many camping trips to Paris Landing.
I will never forget the picnic table tipping over with both of us on it, and my left ring finger was almost cut off. You, Becky Henry Dowty & Dot Henry were laughing at me while Uncle Bill took care of me because I was crying my eyes out.
You bought me my first jean jacket and taught me the difference between something cheap and a name brand. You always told me to spend extra money to get something nice.
Thanksgiving was always so much fun at your house with all your foster girls.
When I was working at the bank, I remember you and Uncle Bill meeting me for lunch at the Chinese Restaurant in Bartlett. We always had so much fun.
You told me not to worry about what anyone thought of me because of my lifestyle. You said they can mind their own damn business.
I've always thought of you as a grandmother and I will love you forever. I will see you one day and I will always be your Jeffery Lyn!
I love you so much! 💔❤

It is so sad that Virginia Ruth is gone. I have so many fond memories of her as a teenager when she would come visit. After she married she was a loving mother to all the kids she raised. She was one of a kind, lots of fun and will be missed. RIP Virginia Ruth. Love you, Marie (Ralph) Goldman
