Virginia was my mother and I miss her more and more each day. Christmas was her favorite time of year and it was always YES VIRGINIA THERE IS A SANTA. But now it is YES VIRGINIA THERE IS A GOD. And I believe that Virginia is in heaven sitting on Santa's lap. When she was in the hospital her husband put out the Christmas decorations so when she could have Christmas when she got home. What Love!!!!!!
