My condolences to Virginia's family. I worked with her for many years at Defense General Supply Center. She was a pleasure to have as a co-worker and was always a lady. May she rest in peace. Jim Martin

I am grateful I got to know Virginia in the last few years. It was always clear that she was proud of her family and wanted to be in the action. I have a very clear picture of her, sitting in Mary Elizabeth's living room, keeping up with whatever was going on. It was important to be with the family and be an audience for the comings and going of a Thanksgiving dinner. You were the ones who could help her live out her final days as a central part your family. You were truly a blessing to each other and an example of unconditional love. I am grateful I got to know you both a little, and blessed to see the love and care you take of each other. You are and have been in my prayers.
