Bill, Ginny & I were friends in college & she was a bridesmaid in my wedding to Bruce Anderson in 1966. I was Beverlee Trojan & now am Beverlee Anderson Lee. My first husband Bruce Anderson passed away. Today I received a phone call from Betty Mathis who then told me about Ginny's passing. I am in shock. I have so many fun memories of the good ole days. I moved to DC in 1970 & have stayed. Consequently lost touch. Sending many prayers for you & your family. She was a great gal. I know how much you miss her the best. I admired her devotion to Special Ed. Still in shock not sure it is too late to send a message. God bless you
