Ginger was a very good friend to me for many years. Even though I moved the miles between us didn't stop our friendship. She could make you laugh and always had the words to comfort you. She loved you David and not long ago we were joking and I told her that not everyone is as lucky as her, I said you been married to David 100 years ❤️ my heart is broke loosing my friend and I can't imagine how you must feel. Stay strong 🙏 my prayers for you and your family. R.I.P. Ginger until we meet again. Love you Gina

Ginger was special to me in so many ways. I had the privilege of sharing a house with her and David in Garland Texas many years ago building memories that will always be with me. My heartfelt sympathy to David, Mary Jo, Jackie, and Steve, and all the family.
