    Frankie, Just now heard about your mothers passing. I am so sorry to learn of this. Thought the world of Ginger. She sure was a lady and will be missed. Prayers for you and the family are being spoken. Was good to see you at Jacks service. Just wish I had known about Ginger. Love to all. Sue and Kenny.
