Granny, You took me in as your own from day one. I couldn't love you any more if you were my own. I will always remember our chats and hold dear our time together. I'll never eat a hot dog again without thinking of you! We love you and miss you. Rest easy in His arms!

Virginia was my aunt and a very sweet, amazing one. I loved calling her and talking to her, she was so wise in age and always asked about my family. Virginia and my mama Alma looked so much alike and also were alike in personality. I always received a Christmas card from Virginia every year and I was so taken back every time that I did because her handwriting looked just like my mama's . I will really miss Aunt Virginia, she was the best part of my mama that I had left. My thoughts and prayers go out to all the family.
