  1. Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of your mother/sister. I met Ginny just once on a vacation many years ago. I found her and my Uncle Cliff to be very happy together. I’m curious to know why he was not mentioned in her obituary nor her in his. Had something happened to them as a couple prior to Uncle Cliff’s death? I realize this is probably not an appropriate time to ask, but I’m very curious as to what happened between them, if anything. Again, I’m very sorry about your loss; I found her to be a very sweet, loving woman.

    With sincere sympathies,

  2. Please accept my deepest sympahy on the passing of your mother/sister. I met Ginny many years ago while vacationing and visiting family. I found her to be a warm, loving woman. Cliff was my uncle, and I noticed that he was not mentioned in her obituary and that she was not mentioned in his. My mother, Cliff’s oldest sister, was always saying how happy she was that the two of them had found each other and what a wonderful and happy couple they were. This is what I saw when visiting with them so many years ago. I realize that this is probably not the most approriate time to ask this question and truly hope tht it doesn’t cause you any pain, but I’m really curious as to what happened between them.
    Again, please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss. I know she will be missed.

    Thank you so much,
    Lorri Arnett
