    The Smiley Family,
    Sorry to hear about Ginny,but glad to know she is where she wanted to be. Her suffering is over. The last time I saw her was at a worship service in Portsmouth,VA about 30 years ago. The next time we meet will be on the holy hills of Glory. We pray for comfort for all of you during this sad time. May God bless all of you.

    She will be missed so much by my mom, sister and myself. She and my mom Mary were friends for 60yrs. She was such a silly lady and our nick names will still live on. Love to all of you and sorry we can’t be there to celebrate her life.
    I loved her more than anyone knows. I’ll miss our conversations the most. RIP Jenny. You’ll always be in our hearts.

    Jenny was fun, kind and loving. Her Mom Maggie was my babysitter. My sisters grew up with Jenny and Judy. I have many fond memories of Jenny. It has been many years since I have seen her. She will be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. Hold tight to all your wonderful memories.
