I am so sorry for your loss. Ginger was always so nice and very patient with me when I was the bratty neighbor. My family moved into a house on Russell almost right behind hers, she and I talked from time to time. We talked about the stupid stuff we did when I was a kid, she knew things I had forgotten. My thoughts and prayers and with you and your family.
