Ginny enriched so many lives in so many ways. I feel blessed to have known this good, kind Christian woman. May she now rest in peace in the presence of our Heavenly Father and His son, our Savior
I'm convinced they don't make them like her anymore.she had many reasons and occasions to say "poor me" but she did not she counted her blessings every day of her life and by so doing enriched the lives of those around her
My sincere sympathy to you, her loving familywho will miss her spirit even more than her numerous friends willl. she is the only person I have ever known who did not grumble or complain. she felt your love constantly and it gave her strength. May her spirit live on
