    Even though we only knew Ginger for a short time, it seems we knew her for ever. She was a very warm and delightful LADY. We were saddened to hear her life was cut much to short. Jim we hope you find comfort and peace in your travels and please keep in touch.

    How awesome it was for Ginger to be our wonderful sister-in-law. Even though she came in to our lives at a later time, it was as if she was always a part of our family from the beginning. We cared about her deeply and know that she loved our brother very much. She will be sadly missed by all of us but will be in our hearts always. Your loving brother and sister.

    I remember Ginger as being very energetic / always smiling and full of life. The memories are from long ago as I have not seen her since we graduated from Blanchester High. But the sorrow is still there when someone we have known has passed on to the greater life. My sympathies to her family and friends. May God bless all.

    Uncle Jim, When I met Ginger and saw you last it was obvious how happy she made you and what an awesome lady she was. Though short, I really enjoyed the privilege of spending time with you both. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Your nephew, Joel
