Thoughts and prayers for the family. I enjoyed our many walks and just chit-chatting. Had the pleasure of knowing her for the past year. Wonderful person inside and out.

Virginia will always hold a most special place in my heart. I have such fun memories of Momma and me staying with her at the beach house. I send my condolences to all of you. I just had minor surgery, else I would be there at the service on Saturday. Please let me know if I can do anything for y'all. God bless you. Susan
