    Ginger, Vikki and I didn’t know your mom very well, but we know what kind of life she lived and the influence she had based on knowing you. You’re a strong, caring, warm hearted Christian woman and your mom’s nurturing and training had a lot to do with that. We’re both so sorry for your loss, and are praying for you and your family during this time of grief and loss.
