    My late wife, Mary Daniel, and I became friends with Jenny when she moved to Wilmington to be near her sister Doris. She was a gracious hostess and we enjoyed very much our visits with her. Jenny endured considerable pain without complaint in the past few years. I am saddened by her death and my thoughts and prayers are with her family in this time of sorrow.

    Aunt Virginia was such a special person to us. One of my favorite childhood memories was Aunt Virginia cooking up a storm and she and Uncle Donald and all of the family having such a good time. I was so happy to see her over the years and to spend time with her. She was such a special lady. I find comfort in knowing that she is now with Granny, Uncle Donald and all of her sisters and know that the world is a better place for her having been in it. Donald, your mother always spoke so highly of you and was so proud of you. She felt like she couldn't have had a better son and though I know these days are hard, the good days will override these bad ones. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

    Dear Donald, Gloria and girls, We are so sorry for the loss of your mother and grandmother (and known to me as Aunt Ginny). She was an incredible woman whom I always cherished visiting with to listen to her stories of travel and adventure. I know she will be missed dearly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. With love, Christie (Baxter), Jeff and Wesley Hopkins

    "Aunt Ginny" was my great-aunt, but I to me and my mother was simply "Aunt Ginny". She was a fabulous entertainer, and I always admired her "Caldwell" spirit that I believe was passed to me not only through Meemie (Ginny's surviving sister) but through all the "Aunts" (girls) of my Great Grandmother. I always admired strong since of self and independece and her fiery red nails that were always perfect!! I will miss visiting her, but will always have fond memories of the times we spent together after she moved to Wilmington. My heart goes out to Meemie and surviving family. Love to you always. Christie Baxter (Grand-daughter of Doris Caldwell Tienken and Great Niece of Ginny).
