I had the privilege of meeting Virginia at her lovely home, since her son, Fred, and my daughter, Deenie, were engaged to be married. Virginia was a lovely person, very devout Christian. She had had so many tragedies in her family, in the loss of two of her children and her husband within a short period of time. What a strong person to withstand such losses, and still carry on with her life. My heart goes out to Fred and Deenie at this time of celebration of Christ’s birth. Be assured that Virginia is in heaven with her loved ones, and no longer has to endure the suffering this earthly life can bring on. I extend my heartfelt sympathy to Fred, Deenie, and those who knew and loved Virginia. She will be sorely missed.
