Ginny is with our Lord, but her spirit will always remain with us. I first met Ginny when she cut our sons hair. She even came to house and purchased a drawing of Horse. She will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

Alan, Andy, and Arnie,
My heart breaks for you and your family. Gin Gin was a truly amazing woman. I will always remember, and cherish, the holloween parties, 4th of July festivities, quiet times shared with her at her little slice of Heaven. Ginny always knew the right thing to say or do to make my life not seem so bad. Her touch could heal a thousand hurts. In the quiet, know that she is still here touching us in that special way. I will miss her.
You are all in my thoughts and Prayers.

Alan, Andy, and Arnie,
I am saddened by the loss of your mother, and my family's dearest friend Ginny. After the loss of my own mother, she was like a mother to all of us. I will miss her deeply, the phone calls at Christmas, the bithday cards, and the things she would write in those cards just to make me laugh. My earliest memories are of all of us together in Phoenix. I will keep her in my heart always. There could only be one Ginny and anyone who knew her, knows that there could not be another. Her light will shine bright forever.
