I am Ginger’s second cousin. Her mom Dot was my first cousin. When we were kids my Mom Would bring us to visit Dot and Ernie and the gang. I always thought Ginger was sooo beautiful with her long flowing hair and the sweetest person ever. Sweet dreams Ginger.

I would like to express my condolences in the loss of your dear loved one. The bible gives us hope of seeing them again in the promised resurrection according to scriptures such as [John 5:28-29] and [Acts 24:15]. We find further hope in [Isaiah 25:8] which says that Jehovah God will swallow up death forever. Also [Revelations 21:3-5] says that God wiall wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more. I hope these scriptures will be of some comfort.
With Deep Sympathy.

To many she was either known as Virginia or Ginger. In my younger years she was known as "Tinker Bell". But no matter what she was always a very loving and caring person.
You will always be loved and sincerly missed.
Rest in peace.

Our deepest condolences to the family. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, words alone cannot ease the pain of our loss. Our loving God Jehovah understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 147:3 reads He (God) heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds. We can also find comfort from Jesus words at John 5:28-29 “The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out”. May these scriptures bring comfort and calmness of heart to you during the difficult days ahead.
