Mom & I were so sorry to learn of your mom’s passing. Our mothers kept in touch over the past years, most recently this past Christmas holiday. You and your families will be in our thoughts & prayers.
I’ve always had such great memories of Ginger and Joe at our house on Saturday nights or we would be on the island having an Italian dinner made by Joe. Ginger was such an amazing beautiful kind woman. And a great friend to my mom Janice Bleifus. I pray for the whole family at this time that you would have peace and joy with her memory.
Ginger was a very dear friend of our family. My mother Beverly and her had some very special times together. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
