  1. You will dearly be missed. A loving and caring Lady you have always been to us all. I love you MiMi.

  2. A beloved and wondeful lady, it has been my pleasure to know her and her family for many years. I will miss her.

  3. Tommy and Billie,

    I’m so sorry for the loss of your mom. My parents shared good times with your parents. So sorry.

  4. Miss Virginia was a loving and caring person. Her and her husband, Dewey, were members of the Coachmen Roadrunners. They were loving grandparents to my three sons, David, Lee, and Ben. I do not believe she ever met a stranger. Just someone she hadn’t talked to yet! We mourn the loss for her family.

  5. I have been a friend of Virginia and her extended family since 1957 and am deeply saddened by her passing. She is the last of her generation of the most loving, caring, and happiest families I have ever known. My relationship with her and her family has been an uplifting experience on every occasion, and her and their passing has left a significant void in my life. The world would be happier if there were more people like her. My heart goes out to her family who have loved her dearly for all of their lives. Tom Hall
