At our 50th Madonna High School Reunion, I found out the sad news of Ginny's passing. Just when I was hoping to see her and catch up on old times. Ginny was my classmate at both Prince of Peace and Madonna. She was such a gentle soul, kind and sweet. I am so sorry to hear that such a positive soul is gone. My condolences to her family.
