    Dear Tom and family, we were so sad to hear of Ginny's passing. She was always an encourager and a fun person to be around. You are all in our prayers. We will be in Peoria for the International Conference on Missions for the end of this week, so we will miss her memorial service at the Village, but you will be in our thoughts.
