  1. I did Virginia’s nails for many years & cant’ say enough for such a wonderful giving, person she was. She will always be missed, but what great memories she has left behind. My heart goes out to all of her family!

  2. I went to high school with Virginia’s daughter Ember, and immediately felt at home the very first time that I went to Embers house. Virginia made me feel welcome in her home day or night. She was a wonderful woman and a loving mother. I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to know Virginia. Sending love, hugs, peace and comfort to everyone during this time.
