    I will dearly miss Virginia. She and I spent many hours talking to one another on the phone. A few things I remember about her was her “green thumb”. She had some of the most beautiful flowers in her yard and the irises always were a showpiece. She had amazing houseplants that would be the envy of this new generation of houseplant collectors. She loved to sit on her porch and sometimes fall asleep there. The birdhouses and feeders drew in flocks of birds that she could watch from the porch. JD fed the deer and they both enjoyed seeing the deer come up behind the house. I pray for the family and her friends in the days to come and that everyone will find peace, comfort and strength. Until we meet again my dear friend.
