  4. Oh wow where do I begin. Virginia was ALWAYS good to us and didn’t hesitate to let us know if (just like her own kids) we weren’t doing things that didn’t meet her “expectations “. We have known her for 46 years and not once did she not treat us with love. She will be dearly missed and our sympathy and love go out to her family.
    LOVE YOU VIRGINIA……… ❤️❤️❤️
