No matter the circumstances Mom's are tough to lose. Their unlimited love, nurturing, caring can never be replaced. The childhood admonitions always ring true and are at the core of who we ultimately become. I know you will treasure her and those priceless memories always.
With warm regards,

Ginny was such a beautiful person, inside and out. Always had a smile on her face, an uplifting message to offer and a wonderful hug that made you feel like you were "home". She was so proud of her family!!! I believe that was her most cherished accomplishment. Darrell & I offer our heart-felt condolences to the entire O'Connor family - and beyond. Although she will be missed, she will never be forgotten. May the many happy memories you all have help lighten the grief. Love and prayers to you all.
