British Columbia, Canada
I just got off the phone with Larry and he was excited to share that he had spent two and one half hours this afternoon with Ginger's senior English class today. He said it was an incredible experience that he would never have traded for anything. He left there with a box of mementos, that are worth their weight in gold to both he and his wife.
He wanted to share this article that appeared in the local paper today with all of you as it is about his daughter.
Larry asked that I tell you that the poems from your hearts, emails of support, and your understanding are worth so much to them. He never fully realized until something awful like this had to happen, the true value of belonging to a wonderful place like Passions in Poetry, and being part of the extended family he has made here.
Apparently a Shelly Crump from the school where Ginger worked has joined Pipps and the students are trying to post here as well but he was unable to find her on site, so if anyone can help will you let me know please.
Ginger's funeral is being held at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, but her burial will take place on Tuesday morning at 11:00 a.m. so Larry will not be back in Phoenix until Tuesday evening now.
He said, if there seems to be a delay in his being on line or answering you it is because he is faced with hooking up a new ADSL connection to get online when he gets home so that will be the lapse.
He sent his love to everyone and gratitude.
To those that were involved in sending the spray of flowers there will be thank you notes being sent from The Chadwick Family when Larry returns home. He won't receive the listing of contributors until tomorrow and has limited access to a computer at the moment, so I imagine he will deal with this task when he gets home. The flowers, organized by Martie, will be delivered on Saturday to the funeral home for the memorial service.
