  1. I met Ginny when she joined the golf league 18? Years ago. She was a great golfer! Tuesdays will not be the same without her. I used to look forward to seeing her when she stopped by Grayslake Library also. It was fun to help her find a new mystery series. My sympathy goes out to the family.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Sandy. She loved her golfing buddies! And there was nothing like a good book to relax with.

    2. Sandy, thank you for sharing. Mom loved hanging out with her golf buddies then coming home to relax with a good book.

  2. I will miss Ginny when we all gather to play golf this spring. I so enjoyed playing golf with her and just having wonderful conversations. I still aspire to play golf as well as she did. She was a special gal to me.

    1. Thank you for sharing, Peggy. Mom truly enjoyed her golf outings and loved to tell us about them.

  3. Heartfelt thoughts and condolences to Krista, Kent, Kim, Kathy and the rest of the family in this time of sorrow. I know how hard it is to say farewell to a parent and I hope this sentiment brings you a sense of comfort during this time of loss.
