“My dear cousins,
Such fond memories I have of your family. Uncle Don and Aunt Virginia were always there for me to support and talk with me as our family roles changed and developed. My happiest memories were getting to spend the night at Aunt Virginia's house. Although Susie was the main attraction, I know Aunt Virginia was always a voice away if I needed her.
She and Uncle Don gave me the best 21's birthday party dinner. What an amazing couple, longevity, through many...
“My dear cousins,
“I've been remembering the sound of Aunt Virginia's voice and thinking of her sparkling eyes this week. She always made us kids feel so loved. I'm grateful that I was able to hug her and hold her hand two years ago after too many years of not seeing her. It's lonely knowing that she's not there in that house in DuQuoin; she was always the touchstone. I'll miss her presence in this world. She was such a beautiful lady. I was so proud of her strength, during her recovery over a decade ago(she...
“We are certainly thinking of you and the family Sue.
“Well Virginia was my Big sister and she truly was that all my life. She was a very good influence on me in her steadfastness in all ways...family was very important to her and I am thankful I was a part of the original one...and she kept on for 60 plus years extending a welcome with a smile from her heart to the last great grand-baby. A wonderful heritage for all of us relatives to continue on with her good example. Uncle Buddy has such fond memories just as I do..golfing..little nieces and...
Thinking of Aunt Virginia makes me smile. She had a funny sense of humor and loved a good time and was so proud of her kids and grandkids. Uncle Don was the best, also. DuQuoin will never be the same without them. I loved them both and the older I get the more I admire their 64 years of marriage and having raised 4 rambunctious kids!! (I've got my hands full with 2!!) God bless you, Kathy, David, Terry & Susie, and comfort you in the coming years. Love you. Great...
“I extend my deepest sympathy to the entire family. I have known almost the entire Beggs family for as long as I can remember and Virginia was a wonderful lady. She always greeted me with a smile and a friendly word, whether at the golf course or anywhere else we would cross paths. Her and Don are back together and watching over you all now.
“My heart is sad to lose my dear Aunt Virginia but know she is happy to be with her love again. I have very fond memories of many fourth of July picnics and fireworks or sparklers as I was always the youngest it seemed at their home. Even now years later I can visualize all of it at this moment. I pray for peace for all of my dear cousins and their families during this sad time. I love you all very much.
“Sue my heart goes out to u and your family. You Mom, was a great lady, I'm sure your Dad miss her and just came and tooker home next to him. may the both rest in peace and u rest also, knowing they are happy together again. love u Marsha and Bruce Bratten
“Kathleen, Sue, David, Terry and Families:
You have my sympathy in the passing of your mother. May GOD grant you HIS peace which surpasses all understanding. Stephen Moss
