    I worked with Ms. Virginia years ago at FoodTown and we always had a lot of fun and laughs at work. She was a beautiful person, inside and out, and always had such a great zest for living. I am blessed to have had her for a friend for so many years! She used to like to bake and would always bring me a slice of almost every cake she made and I was always happy to get it…she was an excellent cook. To her family, I say you are very blessed to have had such a wonderful mother and that I am sorry for your loss. To Ms. Virginia, I say farewell, my friend… Your toils of life are over and now it is time to gain your reward! God bless you all, now and always.

    Ms. Virginia touched many lives during her long tenure and career with Gerald’s Foodland. I must tell you how much I love this photograph. This era of hairstyles, clothing etc. only accents the real beauty of this lovely lady. My deepest sympathy goes out to you at this sad time.
