|Let the memory of Virginia be with us forever|
"Happy Anniversary, Mom!
Thinking of you now and always. Your love endures!
"Your Way, mom, keeps giving me strength through it all. Your memory is a blessing that lifts me up, makes me smile, brightens my spirit, and restores my resolve. What remains is love."
"Mom, I miss you so much. I find myself thinking about calling you and talking like we used to. You were my best friend and confidant. You always had my best interest at heart and made me feel unconditional love. You always had a positive, can-do attitude. You smiled through life and had the sweetest, most gentle soul. I know you are watching over me from heaven and I know you are no longer in pain. I am blessed to have had you as my mother. I will love you forever. Keep smiling, Mom."
"Mom, I remember your love & grace. I miss you so much but I know you're in Heaven & you're happy!
Thank you for your wonderful example of a loving, caring, & nurturing Mother with no complaints through it all.
I love you!"
"2 years ago Heaven gained a new Angel, Virginia Mench, our Mom.
We have been greatly blessed to have you as our Mom, guiding us in life with sweetness, gentle kindness, love and humor. You still do that today, just from a different place. You are in our hearts and memories. You are forever loved."
"Happy birthday Mom. I miss you so much. You have always had such a gentle soul and a golden heart. I feel you around me and I hear you from heaven. I will always love you."
"Aunt Virg made my life FUN whenever she visited! She always had a smile and a memorable laugh that will be remembered always! We were blessed to know her."
"Gracious. Mom was gracious through life's trials, smiling and grateful for the love she received even in the last painful days.
Hopeful. She decked the house in inspirational quotes, set her goals and dreams, and held on with a determination only hope can sustain.
Loving. Nothing ever shook her enduring love for the people in her life. She made sentimental gestures of support, big and small, at every opportunity. She is there, in every photo of life events, important or trivial, in support of her family.
Photos, memories, her rainbow beach hat, the book of "Lines for Everyday Living" she spontaneously gave to me, her relentless passion for gardening despite a less-than-green thumb, the upbeat songs on her favorite hits list, and the courage to follow in her footsteps; these are the treasures she left to me.
I love you forever, Mom. We'll be together in heaven."
"God bless you Mom! We miss you & love you! Thanks for watching over us this past year! ♡XX♡"
"So sorry for the loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. I will always hold such wonderful memories of my Aunt Virg and all the family visits and vacations we all shared growing up."
We know that you are heaven and watching over us. We are so very thankful for your spirit. Your gentleness, humor, kindness, humility and love will be with us forever."
"Grammy was one of the kindest hearted people I ever got the pleasure to be around. She was an amazing grandmother and her love knew no bounds and she always has a habit of showing that. Love you as big as the sky Grammy I know your looking down on us all right now."
"Mom, I will always remember what a gentle, happy, positive, loving person you were and I thank God for giving me the gift of your influence and love. One of my favorite memories is singing the fish song you taught us while we were traveling in our car. So, Mom I'm singing with you still. Boop boop didum dodem wadum choo and they swam and they swam all over the dam! You are always in my heart and I will always miss you."
"We send heartfelt condolences to our daughter-in-law Susan and to all other members of Virg's family.
Terry and Sally Byrne"
"Grammy will continue to live on in my heart and memory. It cannot be considered such a loss, when heaven has gained the sweetest angel of all.
'“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)'"
"We lost a gentle and loving person, who I will always remember as caring and thoughtful. Special memories of Aunt Virg will stay with me always."
"How could I find words of tribute worthy enough that could express what sisters have shared over many years. Thanks again Virg for the memories. We have traveled far in our lives and have been blessed many ways, Thank you for being in our lives. I have not lost you because you will always be in my memory and heart.
To John, my nieces and nephews I send my loving and caring thoughts.
"A woman of Love, Kindness, and Grace! We Love you and miss you very much! Your optimistic Love of Life leaves an imprint in all our hearts! Forever in our Hearts!!!!"
"I love you grammy, I love you mom."
"I am so sorry for your loss. May she rest in peace and her loving memories live on. She had lived a long and fruitful life filled with love."
"Oh Susan, my heart breaks for you. I remember meeting your parents at a dance and was amazed by your mom and dad's joy for music and laughter. Praying that she is dancing in heaven."
"To all of the Mench family,
Our deepest sympathy.
Take care, Brad and Nancy Tibbits"
