CandleI remember Virginia fondly as the secretary at St. Michaels's School when I taught there. Please accept my condolences on the passing of this gentle lady.

Please accept our sympathies in the loss of your dear Mother. She was a very good friend and neighbor of Uncle Harold and Aunt Mary. Robert and Patricia Blessing.

Extending heart felt sympathy to all the family of Virginia. I have precious memories of years ago visiting your home when in school with Kim. Fond memories of a precious woman who even included me to a trip to South Bend, Indiana where we visited and stayed with cousins! Treasured memories! Be assured of our prayers and thoughts of you as you celebrate a life well lived by Virginia. Blessings.
