    Virginia, you will be missed on this earth by many but never forgotten. Your life gave value and meaning to the life of others by means of your love, friendship and compassion. What your heart gave away will never be gone but kept in the hearts of others forever.

    My thoughts to all the Gann family. I had the chance to spend a couple days with grandma Virginia at her home and will always remember her as a woman who enjoyed living and sharing life with others.
