I offer my sincere condolences to your family. My fondest memories of Ginny was when we would have the time to visit and chat about everything. Ginny was a proper and dignified lady. She brought the fire when you needed an attitude adjustment, a gentle rain when you needed a healing. Ginny will always be loved and remembered.

CandleI offer my sincere condolences to the family. My fondest memories of Ginny was the times we spent together talking our head off about every subject known to man. A very proper and dignified lady was what I respected most about her. She brought the fire when you needed a bad attitude burned up, and a gentle rain when you needed a healing. I'll always love and remember Ginny for the rest of my life.
