Condolence & Memory Journal

I will always remember Aunt Virginia's quick smile and great sense of humor. She and her husband Raymond were a blessing to me and my family when they helped me get an ROTC scholarship to college by helping with a congressional endorsement. I believe she was committed to doing the Lord's work by helping others. God bless her family during this difficult the.
