    I can barely remember when the Higginsons moved in next door to my family, long ago when Virginia & Gene’s 2 girls were really little. My mom took care of Debbie & Brenda for a while and I remember walking Debbie to school when she started. I also have memories of their funny and cute dog, “Poochie!” Virginia was a great mom, wonderful homemaker and a hard worker. I’m sure she had a lot of fun with her grandkids and will be very much missed. Hugs and prayers to all in the family!
