John and Virginia were two of our favorite customers after we opened our shop in 2002. Virginia was such a wonderful lady who lit up the shop with her smile and warmth. We always enjoyed talking with her and she was a special lady we greatly admired. We are thinking of your family at this difficult time and know she will be missed by so many. We were sorry to hear of her passing.

I will always remember Ginger's contagious smile, her love for kids, sticking it out at football games together in all types of weather, trick-or-treating in her neighborhood, and of course her love and dedication to her church family. She will be missed, but we rejoice that she's gone to a much more glorious home!

My sincere condolences to Gingers' beloved family and friends.

I will always remember Ginger for her love of sports. She had great artistic talents. She loved light houses and always spoke so fondly of her trips with her husband to visit many during their travels across the country.

Ginger was so very proud of her family epically her grand children, whom she loved so dearly.

Ginger will always hold a special place in my heart, you will be missed but not forgotten.

May you find that prefect light house and dance forever in Heaven.

Rest In Peace my sweet Ginger, your angel without wings Madeline Johnson

Ginger always had a smile on her face and a good story to tell. She was the ultimate fan for all the men in her life and a proud grandmother to all of her grandchildren. My condolences to all the Johnson family.
