Thank you Linden for introducing us to Virgil. He was a grandpa to our Leslie in the big city when we could not be there and we will always love him for that. He was a kind and caring, hardworking soul who will truly be missed. We kept in touch a few times a year, and Virg always had something to say that was worth hearing! Love and prayers for you and your family.

Mama and Papa (Lanniece and Harold) Lewis

Cindy and I dearly loved Uncle Virgil. He was always there for family members. After my dad died in 1991 I always went to Virgil for advise. We talked 2-3 hours a week on the phone about politics and sports. I will miss those conversations. He was always good to my mother and brothers and sister and always mailed Terry books. He is having a great time now visiting with all his family and friends on the other side. He is trying to turn them in Republicans. (Ha Ha). He loved the LA Clippers. I want to thank Kalia and others who lived with him for all the help they gave him and the love they received back. I was sad for several days but will now smile when I think of Virgil.
