Shocked and saddened at the passing of Ginger. She was a wonderful sister-in-law over the years, a great mother and loved her grand-kids and family. So glad that we were able to take a couple of those cruises together and spend some quality time. I will miss her smile, her laugh and her wonderful cooking. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Uncle Roy.
