    I loved taking care of Virginia! She was always so sweet to us girls caring for her. Her sense of humor always kept us laughing. So sad to hear of her passing.

    I am very sorry for your family’s loss. Many people have found comfort in the words of encouragement found in the bible at Acts 24:15 and Isaiah 25:8. Jehovah God promises to swallow up death forever and to bring back all those already lost in death, Luke 7:11-17 offers proof of this promise
