Dear Jimmy Lewis & family, Gary and I and Mother, Cousin Lucile Edwards, send our deepest sympathy for Virginia. She was one of our true characters of the family. Mother is 93 and in an assisted living facility in Smyrna, Ga. and just does not travel much. I talked to Barbara Rainwater several months ago and she told me Virginia was in a home then. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the whole family even though we did not know her side of the family.

Fred and Meagan, I am sorry for your loss, and glad that you gathered family and good friends to visit her in her last few days. She loved attention and deserved it. Aunt Ginny was funny, hospitable, open hearted and generous. I have fond memories of her and our family get togethers; and I am grateful for things she did for me.
