"What a wonderful woman!!! Virginia was a neighbor for several years, when she lived on Clover Lane. She walked all the time , and we had some of the nicest conversations when she passed my house. She always complimented my flowers. I always told her that when I got to be her age--I hope that I am still physically fit like she was!! May she rest in peace, & enjoy eternity with her Lord!"
