    I was so sorry to read of the death of someone so very young. My heart goes out to Virginia’s family and friends. During difficult times I have been touched by the beautiful words found in the book of Psalms 34:18 that reads “Jehovah is nrear to those that are broke at heart: And those who are crushed in spirit he saves”. I hope these words can also bring you a measure of comfort. Sincerely

    Wichita KSSo very saddened to hear that Ginny passed away and I want you to know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Palmyra PA “The Lord feedest them with the bread of tears and givest them tears to drink in great measure”. The closest communion with God comes, I believe, through the sacrament of tears. Just as grapes are crushed to make wine and grain to make bread, so the elements of this sacrament come from the crushing experiences of life. May the Lord be with you in your time of grief, bless and heal you for he has called a sweet girl with tender, caring eyes to a peaceful land chosen for her. Rest in peace “Ginny”.

  12. Jennifer Dilbeck says:

    You’ll always be remembered Ginny! May God be holding you in the palm of his hand. You’re forever at peace now. Love and Miss you~

    Detroit Lakes Mn.I met Ginny when she moved to Fargo from Havana. We clicked right away. She was such a free spirited person, always trying to have fun in her endeavors. I have so many nice memories and will miss her so much. She’s with her brother Jimmy, her Father, and Grandma Jessie now. I’m so lucky to have had Ginny as a best friend and I know she’s safely in God’s hands now. I miss you Gin-gin.

    To the entire Parrow family,

    On behalf of Fargo Area Local APWU, we want extend our sincere and heartfelt sympathy. The entire Fargo Post Office has been saddened by this recent loss. We are all thinking of you now, and will continue to do so.

    Despite all of the daily challenges at work, Virginia always tried to find the lighter side of things. Where most employees might complain, Ginnie would laugh or joke, reminding us all of the importance of humor and keeping things in perspective. She was a positive influence on all of us. Ginnie was also a very caring person, always willing to help someone else in need.

    She will be missed, but not forgotten.
