  3. Ronnie,

    I was so sad to hear about Virginia. We grew up living around the corner from each other and the teachers in school would think we were sisters if they just heard our last name and seen it written.

    My prayer is the Lord will give you and your family peace and comfort.

  4. Our thoughts and prayers are with you always. You will always be missed.
