"very few women have had the oportunity to marry into the kind of family I did. I knew I had found a good man when I met Mark but then I met Virgil, and I knew why Mark was the man he was..Virgil was a mans man. He was honest,kind and caring and wasnt afraid to defend his family..I have been lucky enough to have had this man for my father-n-law for thirty six years. Thank you for being the man you were.I will count my blessings for having you in my life. Even though you are not with us with body, you are here in our hearts and will always be loved and remembered. God Bless You" Lois(daughter-n-law)
