Mary Ann, so sorry for your loss. Ginger was such a vibrant person and always reminded all of us life is to be lived with joy. Her zany sense of humor leaves colleagues and friends with many memories to cherish. Alzheimer's is such a cruel disease - how thoughtful memorials are dedicated to that cause. Peace and prayers be with you as you walk this difficult journey. She will be missed by so many in her pre-Alzheimer's personal and professional life.

Mary Ann, So sorry to hear of Ginger's passing. We have many great memories of her from the past and were surprised by her passing. I'm sure she will be missed by many but also remembered for her contagious laughter and outgoing personality.

Dear Mary Ann... I'm so sorry to hear of Ginger's passing. Bev & I had last run in to her at a Lourdes College function and enjoyed sharing memories of our days at Regina Coeli. I had no idea she wasn't doing well. The memories I have of the two of you with Mom & Dad are priceless. I was honored to have been asked to be such an integral part of Mom's services; she was such a presence for me during those early years. Her influence shaped my career as an educator. I still hear her words sometimes in the back of my mind! Alzheimer's is a disease that has particular significance for me--my grandmother, my uncle, and my dad died due to complications from it. It's insidious as it robs its victims of their assimilated history, their memories, and who they've become because of them. As a result, they lose touch with important connections they've made over a lifetime--leaving those people stranded and powerless to reconnect in the same ways again. So, Alzheimer's ends up taking loved ones hostage as well. Mary Ann, know that your significance as her only sister was preserved in her soul for eternity, something even that dreaded disease can't touch. I'm sending you warm energy during this tough time. Love....Karen PS I'd like to touch base with you sometime. My email address, again, is [email protected] Please drop me a line when it's convenient for you. Take care.
