My friend

I worked with Ginny at Dollar Tree. We became friends. I would visit her and Chipper. When I moved, I didn't get to visit but I did call her and we would chat and catch up. What a wonderful lady! So kind and caring. I will miss her. Fly high my friend!

Be at peace, Ginny

I will always remember Ginny asking me "did ya, now?" Whenever I told her a story, asked her a question or even talked about the weather. Such a fun lady.
