Mary Virginia was a wonderful, supportive mother whose two youngest daughters I had the privilege of teaching. If everyone had a mother like her, what a great world it would be. She was a First Baptist friend of my mother-in-law, Emma. Lisa and Gina, you and your families are in my prayers. Joyce Harland
