As I think about Virginia and her life as I witnessed it, I see a life spent in pursuit of self awareness.
Her journey to wholeness began when she chose to apply and was accepted into the counseling program at Northwestern State in Louisiana. There she not only achieved a graduate degree, but she battled and began defeating the issues that had been haunting her for so long. I don't exactly remember the timing of the next few years but from there she was began a career that brought significant fulfillment, started a private practice that gave her significance, and met CW who loved her for who she was and who God made her to be. Virginia could never see herself as the beautiful, competent, capable women that so many saw her until God brought CW Miller into her life. It was through that grounded relationship that she began to see herself the way others had seen her for years. Since her marriage to CW she has soared, personally, professional, physically, and emotionally. Furthermore, she has seen her her precious son, Jon, whom she adored, mature into a responsible husband and
father to her most beloved granddaughter, Morgan. That perhaps is her most accomplished achievement.
If you asked me to summarize my thoughts in just a few words I would say that Virginia life's journey was spent in pursuit of self-understanding and self-acceptance and that she dedicated her best years helping others to do
