  1. I have no words! Ms Ginger came into my and Ally’s life as a neighbor and departed my life as a dear friend and adopted “Mom”. We shared a lot of laughs and a meal or two. She will be missed by all who knew her. It is for sure God received an angel with tiny little horns! 😊🥰

  2. Sweet, sweet Ginger. Always a kind, warm smile. I think one, if not my favorite patients!
    Love to Blaine and all of the family.
