  1. I only have gotten to know Virginia personally this past year since I started attending Immanuel Lutheran in Redondo Beach. She and Keith sat next to me during early morning Worship Service. She soon became my friend and how blessed I am to have known her! I will never forget her sense of humor, the sparkle in those beautiful blue eyes and her good mind. My condolences to the family. You have been richly blessed! God Bless you all. Her Friend and Bingo Partner. Joanie
