So sorry to hear about Mrs.Virginia. I've know her and her family most my life growing up in church. I remember Mr. Ashmore's TV store in wattsmill many years ago. I believe that where we got our first floor tv from. Also my mom went to s hook with Mike their son and I remember him from church as well. Mrs. Virginia taught Sunday school and I believe GA's as well. She was such a sweet person along with her husband and son. Mike will definitely be in our prayers during his time or sorrow and loss of his mom. May God give the church family and her family comfort during this sad time. God bless.
