I have been Virginia’s paper carrier for 14 years. She was such a sweet and caring person! She would always call me if she had a light out at her door to make sure I was careful or if it was calling for bad weather she would tell me to deliver her paper when it cleared.If there was going to be something special on TV she would call to have me watch it.She always asked me to save certain things out of the newspaper so she could give to friends and family.Just a delightful customer that I will think about everyday when l deliver in her area. My condolences Family, Virginia will be missed.
