    Our condolences to the Gnat family for their loss. We have been very long time residents of Twin Lakes and the Orchard Subdivision. Known Mrs Gnat and the children since we were all kids swimming in the lake meeting at the pier and in the subdivision.Always remember Virginia as a happy and energetic woman who loved everyone! Was a very outstanding person especially with the senior club and with her newspaper column. Am proud and very happy to have known her and family. Miss her.
