Not sure what to say?

Mrs. Virginia (Mammaw) was an extraordinary lady with overflowing Love for all of her grandkids. She was a fantastic cook !!!! (She could stir up the biggest and most Delicious pot of homemade dressing that you could ever imagine and also pinto beans!
She seemed to really enjoyed the get-togethers at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
My condolences goes out to her entire family.

We work together for 10 years at Liberty Mutual. She was a dear friend to me. I enjoyed so much of her stories about her kids. While I only met Kay and Rhonda, it seems like I knew them all. She loved her kids so. May she rest in heaven.
