Not sure what to say?

Ginni was a four season friend of mine for 42 years. We traveled together, laughed together, shared secrets, cried together, bragged about our kidsall the things that true friends do. I will miss you my friend but my memories will keep me company. Luemma, I am so very sorry for your loss. Thank you for the phone calls to keep me updated this last year. That meant so much to me.

So sorry for the loss of this wonderful lady. I’ve missed seeing her weekly since I retired. She was very special to me.

So sorry for your loss, Luemma. My mom and I used to have many fun times and good laughs with your mom at Karen’s Beauty Salon. We were both blessed with great mothers.

In loving memory of a wonderful lady. Virginia was my neighbor for 24 years...I enjoyed talking to her about all the people we both knew...Since I relocated to Gallipolis I sure did miss standing on the sidewalk talking and watching the fireworks with her on the 4th of July...
