I would pick up Virginia at 11:55 from CCHeights. I would take her to Kmart to board the Baldwin bus. From downtown she would go to different nursing homes to visit sick and ailing friends. Almost everyday, without fail. She was kind and loved to laugh, almost a cackle, from her belly, came that unique laugh. We talked many times about life and death, suffering and hope, the human condition really. Virginia was a walking example of love. It was always a pleasure to joke with her and hear her laugh. May God greet her with open arms and say Well done, good and faithful servant. God Speed Virginia.

To the family of cousin Gin. I extend my sincere sympathy. I will miss her as I always enjoyed her wisdom, laughter and chuckles on the way home from church. She was so thoughtful and caring - never missing an opportunity to visit residents at the nursing homes. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
