Not sure what to say?

Well, Well dear friend, Here it is Dec.14 and I just learned this morning that you had left us. I'm in total shock as when I visited with you in Aug. you were your usual happy smiling self. All the years that you, Olga, Merrill and my self and the other partners in The Silver Wheel came rushing back. I'm so thankful for those fun times. Rest in peace. I look forward to seeing you down the road. Prayers and sympathy to the Santy Family and those who love you.

I have known Virginia since I was about 3 when we moved into the newly-constructed house next to Virginia and Olga (see photo posted earlier). As a preschooler, I would go over to Virginia's to visit and "help" with household chores. I recall eating breakfast and lunch there sometimes. As I got older, I worked taking care of her yard, digging up dandelions and clearing out weeds and brush around the perimeter of the yard. I always took care of the mowing and watering when they were...

Dear Virginia, I was so sorry to learn of your passing. You have been a dear friend and neighbor for so many years. It was so hard to see you sell your home but I know it was becoming difficult.

You were such a good church member and did so much for others. If ever there was a more giving person than Virginia I have never met them. You were...

I met Virginia when she was the advisor, mother, confident, friend of the Walther League in Salt Lake City, Utah. She was the most amazing woman, compassionate, funny, clever, kind and just created a safe and happy place to be. She was terrific with teenagers who are often full of themselves and yet unsure, trying hard to be decent but forgetting it a lot as well. Virginia made us good people, we just could not help it with her example in front of us. How she loved to laugh and take us...

I worked with Virginia at IML at the Newhouse building. She was a wonderful and talented lady. She was an inspiration to to me personally and I've thought of her often. Sincere condolences to her family and friends.

Respected, looked up to and was in awe of Virginia as the "top secretary/admistrative assistant" at IML. Sweet lady, friend, mentor,
