    Jan and I were very sad to learn of Ginny”s passing.
    She was admired and loved by everyone who knew
    her at the Sweetlife Home.

    I played guitar and sang for Ginny, and knew her for
    about a year. I hope I brought a little joy into her life.
    She brought a great deal into mine. God bless her
    and her wonderful family. – Bob and Jan Riley
