Ginger

Two weeks ago our family friend Ginger lost her battle with brain cancer. She was a daughter, a mother, a sister, a grandmother, an aunt, a wife, and a friend. She was a wonderful person and she put up one heck of a fight. 

When we walked out of her funeral last Tuesday, there were at least 10 fire trucks lining the road. I thought for a second that there was a fire across the street, but as we got closer we saw firemen and women in uniform, standing at attention. Her husband Jim is a retired firefighter and they had come to pay their respects to him and his family. I had never seen anything like that before and it really took my breath away.
