    Aunt Gini, I wish I would of been able to see you in more recent years, but I will always remember those summers in the Braden Bottoms on the Hickman Dairy Farm. I will always remember you fondly and I came to love the color purple because of you. I know your at peace and we will cross paths again and until them we will miss you here. I love you, your nephew Paul Hickman.

    Gini, you were a true friend. Always thinking of others instead of yourself. You will truly be missed. We can’t thank you enough for all you have done for us. We hope you are at peace now. I am just waiting for a visit.

    I was so sad to hear about Gini passing away. Gini was always cheerful and had something good to say every time I talked to her or saw her. I worked with Gini when she was in the BMEU back a few years ago. Now James, her son works in the BMEU. I understand the last few weeks have been hard on Gini and I am sorry for that. When things like this happen I try to think of the good times and there were many good times with Gini. She will be missed.

    I will always remember her as an accepting and beautiful person. I don’t think she ever said an unkind word to me. She was always so open to anyone. I will miss her dearly.

    I knew Gini through the State APWU meetings. She was such a lovely lady and will be sorely missed. We will be keeping your family in our thoughts and prayers.
    Always remember God is there. II Cor. 1:4 Who Comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
    May God give you strength.
    With Love,
    Tammy Rowen

    Henry, James & Sue,
    Our hearts are heavy yet Gini in her smile, her big hair, & her big pocket book in hand! All the trips to NY to see her family always trying to keep the peace! Our Sister, Our Friend until we meet again we miss you so much! I never did get to meet your little church family but one day when Jesus calls us home we will worship together again! Dance around the throne of God with Mama Arline, and all the family that’s gone before you! Tell them we will be home soon! We love you Gini no sad good byes! You we’re a blessing in my life nothing can take that away from us :-)

    Henry, SueAnn and Jamie..
    I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you during this difficult time. I have so many wonderful memories of my best friend. We had so much fun at the lake and in school. Remembering my Mom making her wedding dress and then she started a whole new adventure with a wonderful husband. Then as time passed to get the phone calls and to hear the excitment in her voice as she told me she was expecting her children whom she loved so dearly! Gini will truly be missed by all that knew her!

    With caring thoughts and love,
