    Max and children: Of course you have been and will continue to be in our prayers. Kids, what precious memories you have of your mother. She fought a long and courageous battle with the big C. Finally, the Lord said, enough, and took her home. Max we treasure our friendship and remember well having you visit us when Ginny was still well enough to travel. She speaks to us all and reminds us of the words of the apostle Paul: “I have fought the GOOD fight, I have FINISHED the race, I have KEPT the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing! Well done, faithful servant, wife, mother, friend and sister in Christ. Our home is always open.

    To the Family Blessing: While words are always woefully insufficient at times like these, you must remember that the musical score that she personally composed inside each of your hearts will stay with you always —- even well after your mortal bodies have ceased to function.

    Todd, Susan, Doug, Lesley, Keith, Petie, Doug, Sam, Jaci & Marlee,
    Ginny was such a blessing to all of us. She could always make us laugh! She also nurtured all of us! She was devoted to her husband, Max, and their children. We will miss her so much, but her reward is everlasting life with Jesus Christ our Savior.
