Virgil Lee Holley

How do you tell your family and yourself just how bad you miss your DADDY..... We shared a tight bond since birth... heck I was born on HIS birthday and I always joked that I was glad that he didn't give me away.

We just GOT each other.... I always knew he had my back... I never ask for anything from him or Mom because I learned from him HARD WORK was what enabled you to have things and if you wanted something - you planned and MADE it happen.

For two very short years I helped him during his illness.... and I wish he was here today for me to do it again. He would be so proud of how we are now taking care of Mom as I promised him. THANK YOU GOD for those one more days I prayed for often.... I know he is where we all dream to be with YOU. I love you Daddy - Mary

Virgil was always so good to me and my family, when my dad got sick, Virgil would come and take dad back and forth to doctor bc dad got so he couldn't get in a car and Virgil would come get him on his van. Last time I went to see him and Sarah, he sat and talked and laughed with me and that is the memory that I will hold on to. RIP uncle Virgil!

It hurts my heart so much that we have lost Virgil, my brother in law, here on Earth. But I know he is happy with the Lord. He loved his family dearly, and especially my sister Sarah. If we cry now, it will be for us. VIRGIL LOVED THE LORD. I ask that everyone prays for the family. For God to comfort them and let them all be closer than ever. I loved him dearly. God bless the family and help them get through. I am very hurt to lose him, but see him running through heaven shouting!!!! He worked so hard in his life to provide the best for his family. God, bless and comfort them all please in Jesus name. I love you Virgil, so dearly.
