  1. Dear Dawn and Russ, We pray for God’s comfort and we extend our sympathy to you both. I lost track of Virginia when we first moved to Mason City, IA and we have moved several times since then. We are in northern WI now and I have often wondered where Virginia had moved since we lost contact and I could not find a trace. What a very kind person and kind friend she was and the most giving and generous person I have ever met. God bless you and your family, and I am so happy to know that Virginia is now with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We will see her again someday!

  2. To the family if Virginia you have my deepest sympathy. Though I didn’t know her, I now some of her siblings and my sympathy to to them. I’m sure she was a wonderful mother and sister..
