In Loving Memory Of My Mother, My Friend VIRGINIA G. GILDRED Aug. 25, 1923 – Sept. 7, 2000 Her helping hand was always first, to render any aid she could. Her voice was always raised in praise, her words were wise and good. Dear mother, since you have gone away the ones you loved so true, try hard to carry on the way we know you’d want us to. We love and miss you! Tommy and Sheila
