  1. To all of Virginia’s family members,
    We are all so very sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. She was a lovely neighbor of ours for over 20 years.
    We will miss exchanging Christmas cookies with her and the nice conversations that we had throughout the years.
    Our deepest sympathies to you all.

    Sophie, Andy, Steven and Sam

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember both Virginia and Ralph. Also Pearl. Having gone to school with Marcia I have good memories of growing up in the Village of Victor. Sadly there is another funeral same day same time so I am not able to attend. My thoughts and prayers to the entire family.

  3. Dear Marcia, Diane and Gary,

    I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours this day.
