It would be wrong to say that Ginger lost her battle because she never stopped fighting. No matter how sick she was, she was always determined to go back home. When anyone else would have broken, Ginger stayed strong through her we know what resilience and perseverance truly looks like. There was no quit in Ginger. Just because she is no longer here, it doesn’t mean she lost her fight. Ginger was a long-time resident of the area and a cook. She loved spending time with her family and friends.
