I remember Ginger as a wonderful neighbor-- she was ten years older than me and when she met her future husband it was all so glamorous. I recall her getting dressed and going out. My older siblings remember much more. It is a great loss that she has left us too soon. My sister Jean and I extend our deepest condolences.
