We were so sorry to hear of your loss. We are keeping you all in our prayers. One of my favorite memories of Ginger is when my sisters and I were just grade school age I guess and she took us and Traci for ice cream...we were eating along and all of a sudden she announced to us that we shouldn't eat the ice cream too fast or it would give "us" a headache. Lori asked her,"why, are you getting one?" she simply answered "Yep" and we all laughed. We loved her like a 2nd mom and she will be sorely missed.

My thoughts, prayers, and tears are mixed with my admiration, love, respect and smiles whenever I think of Ginger. Both she and Bruce were such a important part of my life without ever knowing it. The example they set together of marriage & family and their unconditional friendship to my dad did not go unnoticed. The world of friendship will miss Ginger deeply.

Dear Ginger, My prayers are with you. We only met once but we had such a good time with your sister Jean and my friend Tommie touring San Francisco and the Bay area. We laughed til we cried about little, silly things that made the day so much fun. It was a pleasure meeting you and I will cherish our short time together. Love, Lois

Bruce and Family: So sorry for your loss. Will miss Ginger at our coffee get-together. Bruce, take care and our thoughts are with you. It sounds like my husband, Dennis, and Ginger may have been classmates in Ordnance.

Dear Bruce and Family, Nelson and I were away when our dear friend Ginger, went to be with God: We were just told today, July 20th, and we are still in another world over the loss of a dear friend who came to see me and bring me an herbal drink to cure me. She was fun; caring; kind; beautiful; and I will NEVER forget her. God bless all of your family. I never got to say goodbye so this is a real trauma to me. I love you, nancy
