I will miss that beautiful warm smile of Mrs. Virginia and the hugs and head bump that we always shared whenever I saw her. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and may God give you peace and comfort knowing that she is with our Father in heaven. She was a Beautiful woman and I loved her.

I worked with Virginia at the Va.Beach Health Dept. for several years where we became friends. She was such a straight laced lady and was always there to give me a hug. Later on I would see her at the commissary and she was the same Virginia I knew at the health department. She again always had a hug for me. She will be missed and I will never forget her. My condolences to all of her family.

I love Virginia like a Mother, she always had a hug, kiss and I love you ready when I approached her. It made me feel special. I will miss her and will never forget her. I enjoyed Sunday lunch with her when I could go. I have a wonderful photo of Virginia and Miles Davis sitting on her couch. You can see the love between the two of them, so sweet.
My condolence to Virginia's family, she loved you all so much.
My love to all the Family, Judi Hoosier
