I'm so sorry for your loss, Virginia was a very special lady I enjoyed every visit with her.

Virginia and I were friends when it was not popular for little Black girls and little White girls to befriend one another. She came to my wedding and put a penny in my shoe (which I had never heard of). I discovered that her hair was straight, produced oil and resisted a curl, while she discovered that my hair was curly needed to have oil put in it. We were tolerant and patient with each other in our ignorance of the other's characteristics. We knocked down walls of prejudice and injustice by our very friend ship and going out in groups together. We lost touch for many years, but when we hooked up again, it was as if we had never missed a beat. I will miss Virginia. I send my prayers and condolences to her husband Richard, her children, her siblings and all the family and friends of which, I am one. God Bless each one, and know that our loved one was saved, sanctified, and therefore she now rests in the arms of Jesus. We love you Virginia.

I met Virginia in 1972 at Gateway Bible College. She was a beautiful person and I loved her. We reconnected a few yrs ago and she brought back so many precious memories. I will miss her but my comfort is that I will see her again on the other side. My prayers for the family as they sort through the loss.

I remember Virginia when she was a small girl. She was so limber and liked doing the back bend. It made her laugh since I could never do it. Sweet cousin.

So sorry for your loss. I will always remember her beautiful voice and awesome piano playing - and her story on how she leaned to play. Thoughts, prayers and love for the family.
