  1. what a beautiful service for Virginia this morning. She was just one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever known and so sincere in her love for Christ and others.
    I just am grateful I knew her and enjoyed her in J.O.Y. club so much, in fact it was Virginia who got me interested with her letter of invitation she mailed out to increase the attendance. Now I’m doing the Secretary Job and decorating and love it all.
    Remembering you during this time.
    God’s Blessings with love, Jane Becker

  2. Gene, and Family, Please accept my deepest sympathies in the loss of Virginia. She was a dear sweet lady, and I know you will miss her greatly.

  7. Gene, Gary & Suzy,
    Sadden to read in the Amarillo Globe News this morning of Virginia’s death. I immediately recall camping trips, refreshments after church on Sunday evenings, Cowboy Camp Meetings and numerous other occassions when the Page and Durham families spent time together.
    Virginia was always so kind and polite. She always made everyone feel welcomed and at ease. We were all blessed by her example of love and civility.
    Love to you all,
    Woody Durham – Lubbock,TX

  8. My deepest sympathy to the Page family. I’ll always have fond memories of Virginia, Eugene, Gary and Eddie as our next door neighbors.
