Aunt B, Sarg, Darla, Jayna, and Ryan, I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I could be there to show my respects to uncle Virg. Everytime I came back home I always looked forward to talking to Virg such a friendly caring person. It sure won't be the same without him but he is in a better place with a bunch of our loved ones. I will be thinking of you guys and praying for comfort during this very difficult time.
