There are no words that can describe the sadness that we feel at the sudden loss of Virginia. She meant so much to us for so many years. She will also be a great loss to our church and the people of Morgans Chapel. Jim, Nancy and family, if we can do anything to help during this time of grief please let us know. You are in our prayers.

We're so sorry for your loss, but grateful for such a peaceful passing. She was truly a remarkable woman, extrememly talented and so very caring. My mind is flooded with memories, the most prominent ones being car rides to and from school. I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to see and talk to her last summer at the Farmers' Market. We were blessed to have known her. Our love and prayers.

I am sorry I did not get to know her better. Lois and I are planning to go to Virginia for the Cox Reunion, or in September. I have some surgery scheduled so it will depend on that. I would love to have seen Virginia then. But I have the sure knowledge that one day we will all meet again, never more to part. I pray that her family will be comforted during this time with that knowledge. I send my love and prayers, Sharon (Cox) Dawson

Aunt Virginia was a kind and great aunt. She always had a kind word and a big hug for me. I had not seen her as much as I wish I had in last few years. Time is fleeing and we should all remember that.
