    Ginny was a truly good person, solid gold. She loved children and I’m sure all the children she touched in her life felt that love from her. Ginny loved to laugh. I smile just thinking of her. Greetings to her family and friends. We will miss her.

    My heart is full of love for my dear friend Ginny. I was so privileged to have her as my friend. She always told me I could be her adopted sister. Her sense of humor often kept me in stitches. She supported me so many times in my hour of need after the death of my husband. She will be missed.
