Virginia and Family, You are all in our thoughts and prayers today and in the days to come. I did not see your Mom often but every time I did see her she had this smile across her face and she was always kind and loving to Cheryl and I. I am sure she will be missed by all that knew her. Love to you all, Glenn, Gail and Cheryl.

It was a blessing having to know you. I really appreciated our friendship. You were always nice to me. I remember you, Honey, Carolyn, Emmaline, Lee-Lee, Frank and the baby girls. I also remember your loving mother. She was a wonderful mother. I am sorry that I did not keep up with you, throughout the years. I know that you are now in a much better place. I will miss you and Honey. Thank you and Honey for being my classmates and friends. Love, Renita Shields
