It was really sad to hear of Ginger's passing. I will always remember her smile as big as Texas and the way she laughed and sometime giggled when she heard a joke that she like. Ill never forget how much she really liked the new red corvair she got. It seemed to match her bright red hair. She was a joy to be around. I'm so sorry for your loss. She will be sadly missed.
