    • Oh how Ginny will always remain loved and special in my heart!
      When I was a teenager and into my early 20’s (over 30 years ago) I used to work at the A&W in Baldwin. Ginny and Dick would come in after church on Sunday’s, amongst other times, and I would love when they sat in my section. I was always greeted with huge hugs from them!
      At that time tips were shared amongst the servers. Ginny would hand me the tip directly and tell me it’s just for you. She meant it too!
      At one time she actually reached in and put the dollar bills in my bra. We laughed together and I remember her laughter being so contagious!
      Thank you Ginny for being a part of my fabric! God’s Peace and Prayers!
