So sorry for the passing of Virgie although 98 years is certainly a full life, to be sure. Virgie was quite a character, funny when she meant to be and even when she didn't mean to be. My dear friend, Vicky, is much like Virgie was - just a pleasure to be around, one of a kind. Virgie always made me feel welcome in her home. She was a humble, down to earth woman, and I am blessed to have known her.

Virgie was a good friend to my mother in law, Ruth Blackwell. I lost Ruth on 2/14/22. I loved calling Virgie and talking to her...didn't know she had been sick. So sorry to hear of her passing. Prayers for her family.
