We were sorry to hear about Aunt Virginia’s passing. Although we haven’t seen her in many years, she was a great lady. May she rest in peace.
I am very sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. She was a very nice lady and I enjoyed the time I spent with her when visiting my Mother-In-Law Norma VanVranken at Van Rensselaer Manor.
I know she will be missed very much by her family, and it is nice that I got to meet some of you because of her.
You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
To Joe and Mary I’m sorry for the loss that you have suffered. You both are in my prayers.
Maryjean and Joe, I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing.
She and I talked on the phone periodically.
She would call and sing”how much is that doggy in the window.”
Virginia was a wonderful and caring person
and she will be sadly missed. I can remember talking and laughing
over our back fence. She had a personality
and humor that was unending!!!
I was in the hospital myself when she passed, and that is why my
condolence is so late.
God bless Virginia, and may she rest in peace.

Mary Jane, just hearing now about your Mom. I am so sorry for your loss. She was a good friend of my Mom’s. She used to always offer me divides from her perrenial flowers because she knew I loved gardening. I can still picture her outside with her walker visiting with the neighbors as I would drive by or the warm raspy sound of her voice on the phone calling to say hello. Peace and healing to you as you mourn her loss. Terry Barney Conway
