We lived " across the road" from the Broushes. I considered Ginny's mom my extra grandma and Ginny was like an older sister (by six years) that I didn't have. I adored her growing up. She was so pretty (blonde!) and had a great laugh and that ornery crooked smile that you knew was clearly up to something. She really WAS one of a kind. It was always a happy occasion to run into her.
My condolences to Gladys, Audrey and Bill, and to Ginny's family. She truly was one of the good who leave too young.
