Virginia was an awesome lady. When our son, Trevor, went to the high school and would be ill, she would fix him soup so he would feel better. She made all the students feel like they were her children. She will live on in our hearts. Prayers for all of you.

Even though I only knew her a short time, I knew right away that this woman had touched so many peoples lives! In my profession sometimes we forget why we are doing what we are doing, wonder if it makes a difference, or if what we do matters to anyone? This woman proved to us all that we matter, we made a difference to her! She will always hold a special place in my heart!

Dear family. I am very sorry to have read of the recent death of your loved one, Virginia. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be very comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and also Revelation 21:3-5. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our dear loved ones, as well as do away with all of the many causes we have for suffering, including sickness, pain & death. Knowing these truths have always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts from the Bible will likewise comfort your family and will also ease some of your pain during this most difficult time in your lives.
