My condolences to Hubie, the entire Cluett, Jackson and Borge family. As a child, I could not have had a more loving, caring aunt. Being the first born nephew, I received more than my share of love and affection from all my aunts. But Ginger was special. Not once, in my entire life did she fail to tell me she loved me when saying good bye, whether at the shop, or if I stopped by the house, or talking on the phone. I have nothing but great memories of Ginger. Love you Hubie, and look forward to seeing you and the rest of the family soon.
