Virgie was the sweetest Volunteer. I loved making her lunch sandwiches everyday. Two of the same but one with more lettuce then the other! Always such a joy to have around with such a sweet smile. She will be missed.

She was such a great person and I was proud to call her a friend. She did a GREAT job with the Veterans Day Parade each year and will be sorely missed but it is comforting to know she's in heaven an can greet Bill when he makes his appearance there! She was loved!!!

I will never forget how she used her boundless energy to help me and so many other Veterans. When she volunteered in the coffee shop, she only sat down to eat. She always greeted you with a smile. She will be greatly missed!
