  10. Carole Dellorfano condolence:

    To all her family, Virginia was like a magnet, drawing everyone to her. No matter whether it was board games, cards, church bingo or the casino, she was in the center of it, organizing it all, and making it super exciting for those of us who gathered near. In the last few years, when we would visit and then part, I would always tell her it was like leaving my best “playmate”, like the old song… I was truly blessed to know her and ALL her wonderful family. So, for one final time, I bid farewell to my best “playmate” and may God bless and keep her soul.
