Condolences to TALK SHOWS USA-syndicated "THE SMALL BUSINESS ADVOCATE" host JIM BLASINGAME on the passing of his mother VIRGINIA FLORENCE BLASINGAME on JULY 5th in FLORENCE, AL at 91.
Her son wrote in his newsletter, "Mom was a force of nature. It never occurred to her that she couldn't do something. Thirty years after the elopement disrupted her high school career, she asked for and got permission to return to high school to complete the work to get her diploma. Even those who wouldn't bet on her, knew better than to bet against her.... Thanks mom, for loving me so fiercely that I can never forget it. I love you too."
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to CLOVERDALE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPT. and UNDERWOOD/PETERSVILLE VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT in ALABAMA.
