Virginia was a really sweet lady and I will miss her. Knowing our loved ones are at peace and in a better place doesn't make us miss them any less. The family is in my prayers.

Mrs. Holley sat right behind me in church every Sunday! I loved her sweet voice as she would sing even when her voice wanted to give way.. I admired her so & she is such an inspiration to me & Isaac! She loved her children so much as well as always asking for prayers for her grandchildren! I loved the way Butch came in EVERY Sundsy morning & kissed his sweet momma! What a blessing she was to our church! We are praying for all your families! I know you will miss her!

Mrs. Virginia Holley was a blessing to all who knew her! I had the privilege to worship with her for several years now at Bread of Life Church of the Nazarene. Every time I saw Virginia, she asked about how I was feeling and how my kids were doing, calling them each by name. She was one of the most determined ladies I have ever known and she never learned of a need that she didn't try to help meet. While she is rejoicing today in heaven, my life is richer for having been witness to her steadfast spirit and her never-wavering trust in the Lord!

I am so sorry Barbara. I remember how kind your mom was to me when we were teens. Bless her!
