My Sympathies to your family at this time of grieving. I worked with Ginny in the Wal-Mart Jewelry Department shortly after I graduated from college and returned back to this area. She was so very sweet, friendly and also very helpful to me. Always a smile, a friendly face and so nice to everyone. I always thought so fondly of her and then later in life, she lived near my in-laws and they were friends. Miss Ms. Ginny's smiling face - Kathy Katzman-Loveless
