I was so sorry to hear about Ginny's passing. She lived down the hall from my mother, Deloris Reich, at Country Manor. It was always enjoyable to chat with Ginny when I was visiting my mom. May special memories of Ginny be of great comfort to all of you.

Pat, Mark, Molly, you lost a beautiful person and you're feeling lost right now. But remember the amazing life she had in 94 years and the things she saw! Take time to laugh, to cry, to rage if you must; then take time to tell your favorite stories, even about the annoying quirks all humans have! Because all of those stories are the lasting legacy she has left your wonderful family. Thinking of you; wishing I could be with you in person.
