I was shocked when I heard he news that Virgin had passed onto another world. I never got to say goodbye but we will chat again one day. I will truly miss our long 3 hour conversations on the phone catching up on all the family gossip. I kept her in the loop in Edmonton , and she kept me in on the things going on in the other side of the family. Rest in peace Virginia you are gone but never forgotten girl.

Dear Norm and family,

Virginia or Ginny as I always called her was a special person to me and in my heart. She was there for support and to listen we shared many life adventures and life lessons and there were many. She was always a phone call away. Ginny was a there for all my children as they were growing up. Norm and family Garnett and I send our condolences. As always you will be in our prayers and thoughts.
Love Garnett& Phyllis

Condolences to the French Family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time. I was devastated by the news of her passing . I’ve only known Virgina for a short time. She welcomed me into her family and made me feel like I’ve always been a part. She was a wonderful woman and great friend. Although she lived in Alberta and I in Newfoundland we still found time to connect. She will greatly be missed.

Norm, I am saddened to read of Virginia’s passing. I remember her as often watching our Ladies Ball Games so long ago. I am truly sorry for your loss.

She was just such a wonderful person. So sweet, and always showed how excited she was to see you. She always made me laugh and had candy out in her living room, which we never did at our house. She would always make those puff wheat squares at Halloween. Which was so unusualbut always the first thing I ate. Im so sorry for the families loss, and my heart goes out to my uncle norm. She was so great and will be deeply missed. Sending mine, and my families love.
