My sincerest condolences to Laura and Polly on the death of their father - 100 years - WOW! I happened to see your father's obituary in the Detroit Free Press beside that of my mother-in-law's (Lois Virgin). How coincidental is that? Then I noticed that your father passed away on July 20th which is the same date that my father passed away in 1973 when I worked with you both at Morley's. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this time of sorrow.
With heartfelt empathy, Corinne (Mozdzen) Virgin
