I knew Virginia as Shirley. She was a customer and sometimes just visitor at the store were I worked, Christopher and Banks, in Mercer Mall. We had many long conversations about life in general. Shirley was a very wise and very dear friend to me. I will miss seeing her pushing her little buggy through the mall. I had come to love her. I pray she had a peaceful transition to the next life and Charles was waiting for her on the other side of the RiverJordan. My sincere condolences to her family.
