    Virginia was a wonderful person full of love and compassion. She is missed by many including me.

    They are not gone – these loved ones whom we mourn.

    We must not think of them as far away. Unto a fuller life have they been born,
    Laying aside the vesture of this clay.

    Yet near us still they watch, and love, and know ;
    We are the blind ones, who no longer see

    Beloved forms that softly come and go,
    Waiting reunion in eternity.
