I am sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. I enjoyed getting to know her at Bible studies at St. Paul a few years ago and have missed her and prayed for her and Tom since. God bless your family.

We were sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing, and earlier of Tommy’s. It is hard to have them both pass so close together. They were such a respected and loved Eudora couple and will be missed by many. Sending thoughts and prayers your way as you go through this difficult time.
