Bye Ginny, may I call you Ginny, of course I may as you told me so many times. I will miss your insight into so many different subjects. You always had an opinion on current events and loved to discuss them. I will miss your funny emails, as I looked forward to them. I know we will met again. Your family loved you as we all did.
