  1. I met Virginia in 1995 when she started doing my nails and went to her until she retired. During that time we became friends. She was more than a nail tech to me, she was a very dear friend. Even though I saw her once a month on my appointment date, we would still call each other between times just to check and see how each of us was doing. If we needed to talk about something that we were going through at the time, we did and it was easy to share with her. She always made me laugh.

    She was like family to me, came to my son’s wedding, shared the happiness with me on my grand baby’s birth and many other things. Even after she retired we still kept in touch, visited on the phone and often met for lunch.

    She was a special lady and I will miss her very much. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

  2. I met my friend, Virginia at the bank in Luther where I am an employee. You know I really can’t remember the date I met her, but Virginia and I just hit it off. We are both a little ornery at times and made each other laugh! We both loved the series Downton Abbey and kitty cats which we discussed frequently. She was a friend to all of us the bank actually, and we will all miss her dearly. I know I will see her again in the blink of an eye! Love you girl!
