    Blair and family, So sorry for your loss. I thought alot of your mom-from the many days at Topsail Elementary where your mom was always willing to do anything to help out. Loved seeing her beautiful quilt work. I count it an honor to have known your mom. Prayers and Thoughts, Mary K. Anderson

    Blair, Your Mother was "one of a kind!" I loved her so much and consider her my best friend. I could depend on her for anything. Not only was she good to me, I took note that she was a complete "humanist" and was good to just about everyone she came in contact with. No doubt she will easily enter the gates of whatever heaven we think exists. Michael W Jones

    Grief can be so hard, but your special memories that you will always have of your loved one, along with the comfort from the bible can help you to cope with life's anxieties(Psalms55:22). Jesus cares deeply about mankind and the bible says that our enemy death will be done away with. Even the feeling that those who have to deal with when a love one dies will be gone, for God will wipe the tears from all faces (Isaiah25:8 and 1Corinthians15:26) Jehovah has also promise to bring back to life many who have fallen asleep in death(John5:28,29). In this time of sorrow may it ease your pain to know that others are thinking of you.

    I didn't know her but I just found out Virginia is my mom Monica Ann Fram (Villarreal's) cousin. My grandmother is Dolores June Mondichak Fram. I was researching my grandmothers last name when I came across Virginia's name my grandmother right away told me we were related. My grandmother had fond memories of Virginia. She sends her condolences and love and wishes the best for you all. Love and light.
