Ann, so sorry for the loss of your mother. I think of you often and remember all the good times at Lakeside. Your mom was a beautiful person who cared a lot for all the people around her. May she rest in peace,

I have such warm memories of Virginia. She was a wonderful and loyal friend to my mother-in-law, Jean Weigand. She was kind and generous, always willing to drive Jean to medical appointments. They enjoyed time at Lakeside together, and they were travel buddies to different states. My parents had the pleasure of hosting Virginia and Jean in Bethesda, Maryland, years ago. She left memories to treasure.
