Daphne and Sophie,
I was so sorry to hear of Aunt Virtue’s passing. My last memory of her was when Nan moved in from St. George’s with her after Uncle Wilf died. I brought my daughter, Kelly, down to visit Nan, and I believe Aunt Blanche was there visiting as well. Aunt Virtue made such a fuss over my little girl, and me too!! She was so sweet. Lots of hugs all around. May she rest in peace, God bless.

Sophie & Daphne. Sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. There is no love like a Mother’s love. May all the memories of her help you over this difficult time.

Daphne and Sophie, I have such fond memories of Aunt Virtue and Uncle George as a child growing up and hanging out at the store with the hopes of getting a candy. Uncle George would slip me candy without Aunt Virtue knowing. I will never forget the look on her face as Uncle George raced out the door “shouting Pearl has caught the grass on fire”. Sending you warm hugs and loads of love. Lois

Daphne, Sophie, and family,

We send our Love and Prayers for you and the family. May the Lord bless and comforted you now always as you mourn the loss of your dear Mother, Virtue.
“May her rest be in Peace, and her dwelling place be in the Paradise of God.” Amen+
Love to all, John & Cynthia
