  1. It was a great honor to have met Virginia. Although we will miss her, we are comforted to know that she is at peace in the hands of the Lord.- Rachael Diaz

  2. I truly regret missing the Memorial Service for Virginia. Because, for over 41 years my family has had the pleasure of being neighbors to the Mitchells. Her husband Joe Mitchell welcomed us to the neighborhood by supplying the right tools and helping my husband dig up the front lawn and repair our broken water main. When my husband (Ellis Massey, Sr.) passed in 1987, Virginia (a true Christian church lady) came to my rescue by providing, before and after school care for my children, Anisha and Ellis, Jr.
    I will miss baking a sweet potato pie for this \Lady\” every Thanksgiving Day as I did so also for Joe…
    Most of all Virginia will be missed and always remembered as we affectionately called her \”Mrs. Mitchell\”.
    My Condolences and prayers go out to her daughters Pauline and Liz. Always remember we\’re just across the street.
    Sincerely Barbara Massey
    Rest in peace in God\’s hands my friend Amen Amen AMEN!
