I am so sorry for your loss Ginger was a beautiful lady inside and out. She was a member of Bible Journey SS Class before her stroke and knew the Bible like the back of her hand. She shared so much with our class. She was a caring and loving friend to all. RIP Ginger. Carolyn I pray God will wrap His arms around you and give you peace and comfort during this sad time.
