Deepest sympathies Mary Ann, Phyllis and Larder family on Virginia's passing. I have wonderful memories of your Mom (and Dad) especially at family reunions and also in Florida as they treated me to a very special evening at the Kapok tree years ago or at my grandmother's house for some special family event. Your mom always had the most beautiful twinkle in her eyes as she loved to have fun with all of us. Hoping that you will find comfort from family and friends in the days ahead and know how very special she was.

With love and sympathy your cousin Linda(Alford) Lyding

I have many fond memories of growing up just down the street from the Larders and the Monnins in Penn Yan. What a fine family! My thoughts and prayers are with you all during your time of sadness. May God comfort you and give you peace. Respectfully, Krisann (Retorick) Taylor
