I loved Virginia, she loaned me her youngest son to share my life with for almost 25 years. She and I both missed him dearly after he passed and we shared tears and memories until her passing. She raised a fine family and would literally shine with love and pride when she had her boys all together. Her baking skills and humor made family gatherings we all enjoyed! She could be tough but was also fair and I grieve her loss and look forward to a family reunion in heaven someday. My prayers and sympathy go out to all her family.
