Virginia was a kind generous Christian woman. I got to know her at First Baptist Church inClayton when my late husband , Rev Robert Mowatt. She was a good church worker. After our 2 sons, Andrew and Ian were born,Virginia offered to care for them when we made hospital calls. She would never accept anything but our gratitude and thanks. Virginia said , “just pass it on to some other parents” which I’ve done. After we moved to Albion, NY in1979, I lost track of Don and Virginia to my regret.
