Condolences

To My Loving Cousins.
I am saddened to hear of Aunt Virginia passing. I know you will miss her, as we all shall. Aunt Virginia never failed remembering my birthday (Jan 10) same day as Uncle Tommy passing. Also always a holiday card to Cornelia and I. Your parents love and support throughout my life (even attending Cornelia and my wedding in Pinehurst), will always be cherished and remembered with warm thoughts. Your mother was full of wisdom which I took to heart, always trying to remember her sayings and teachings which were no-doubt passed on from our Grandmother and personal life experiences. My prayer is, “may we all meet again in heaven”. We may be distant in body, but my heart is with all my family! Love, Robert Jr., Cornelia, EtAl.

I'm so very sorry to hear this. My prayers n heart goes out to you all. Love everyone of yall.

So sorry, she was a favorite great aunt of mine. Sorry for mitch and all her family
