Mike, Kristin, Claude, Faye and families, my deepest sympathy is extended to all of you during this most difficult time. I have so many fond memories of the few times that we were able to meet for the Hartline reunions in Georgia, also my family's trip through Lauren's to visit all our cousins when my kids were young. Virginia had all of us pull clothes from our luggage so she could monogram them for us. I always enjoyed her humor and love of life and wish we lived closer so we could have visited more often. I will cherish the memories of times we spent together until we meet again. May God wrap.his loving arms around each of you and comfort you as you mourn Ginny's passing. Love you all.

So sorry to hear Ms. Virginia gained her wings. She was certainly a fine, Christian lady and my Mother thought the world of her. I know she was welcomed into her Heavenly home by many opened arms. May God give you strength and peace today and in the coming days.
