Online Condolences


  1. Ginni kept in touch with my parents, her dear friend Jane Johnson and Gordon Johnson all these years until they passed away in 2017 & 2020. Ginni and I had a few nice back and forths via snail mail and I truly could see why my Mom and Dad had such a long and nice relationship with her, a dear and kind woman! I wish I could have met her and had a cuppa tea. My Mom and Ginni grew up in Riverside together and I always heard of lovely, fond stories of Ginni over the years. They all had full lives and saw so much change in this world, but always kept perspective of the value of dear friends? I jus found a recent letter from Ginni while going through my Dads things and looked her up. My condolences to her family?
