  • Virginia was always the epitome of a genteel, refined lady. Always dressed so nicely and never a hair out of place. I have known her from church since I was a teenager and always thought highly of her. She loved Jesus and I know we will meet again, when the trumpet sounds and He returns for His blood-bought saints!
