We are so sorry will not not be able to attend the services, or to be there with our family. Ginger was my mom's only sibling. They were very close, although we were in California and Ginger and her family in Utah. We spent a lot of time at their home, which was opened to us. Grant, Vicki, and Jerry are our closest cousins. Our maternal grandma lived with Pink and Ginger for many years. I loved going there and just hanging out with them. They were very generous. Ginger has a special place in heaven. I hope we can be together again in the future. We love you North family.

Dear family, Weldon and I wish we could be with you in person to honor your Mom. Ginger was always so kind to us when we would drop in to visit unannounced. We loved the visits with her and Pink. They were such a great example of a devoted married couple and we loved them both.

We hope you can find that peace "that passeth all understanding" that can only come through Jesus Christ. May you feel his arms around you as you mourn the loss of Ginger. All our love T and Jackie
