Sandy, Steve & Sara - Words cannot express how very sorry I am for your loss. We will all miss Uncle Virgil. I am so glad I had the opportunity to see and talk to him just a few days ago. Be comforted in the knowledge that he is with your Mom again and you will be with them again in heaven. I am always here if you need anything. Joyce
