Jim, Patsy, Mary, Becky, Linda, Karen, and Nancy - all of you - plus your dear spouses, children, and grandchildren - are all in my hearts. I had the most wonderful conversation with Aunt Ginny at this last reunion. She told me stories about my dad that I had never heard before, and were very precious to me. She was a rare bird, kind and loving, but strong. I will miss her. Send you all love. I'm so sorry that I can't be there for her service, and to hug you all in person.
