Robin and Craig, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. I am sorry that I will not be able to give my condolences in person as I am out of town this week. I always thought a lot of Virginia when she worked at the hospital, she was always so friendly. I can still see her dancing at the good Christmas party/dances we used to have.
