My heart goes out to Marianna, family, & friends. We are all saddened by the passing of this kind, dear woman. God gave Virginia many gifts, which she generously shared with others. Her love for the Lord and music was inseparable. I have fond memories of singalongs at White Oak when Grandmother Dukes & Virginia took turns playing the piano.
Virginia was also a fantastic cook and gracious hostess, whose hobbies included crocheting & needlepoint (I have one of her afghans in my living room). She enjoyed taking care of her cats and guinea chickens, too!
We will miss this gentle lady, but I know that now she is happily reunited with her beloved "Bud."
