To my Aunt Virginia''s family, you are all in our thoughts and prayers during your time of loss. She was a beautiful person that loved her family completely. I remember the picnics at your home in the summer and our times at the cape. Aunt Virginia and Uncle Gene always had smiles when the family was together. I will remember those times always.

With Love, Cousin David and family from Winchendon MA.
