Just found Ginny's obit while searching for a friends. I often thought of Ginny and our childhoods on Whitcomb Rd. She was the consomate 'lady'. Her house was truly a magical place to me. With the built in toy box, the silver candelabra s and her beautiful artwork. We all loved her, but no one more than my mom. They were two peas in a pod. My sympathy to you all and my praise to Martha for her tender loving care.
God bless you all. 🎇

I adored my big sister Ginny since I was 4 years old and my happiest memories involve being with her and her family. Every conversation with Ginny was enlightening and full of laughter. She will always have a Hugh part of my heart.!
