    I am sorry for your loss. I worked with your mom years ago in the emergency room. We were friends and colleagues. We had a lot of good times together. There is one more angel in heaven and I am glad I could call your mom a friend.

    Art & family, We are both very sad to hear about your mom's passing from this world. You can be very proud of Virginia, and know she is well loved by many. We always enjoyed her soft-spoken humor and good nature. She will be sorely missed in this world, but we are sure she'll welcomed with much joy in the next. May you find some peace during this time of grief, as mere words can't convey how much we wish we could help.
