What wonderful memories we will always have of Mr. Virgil ! A constant presence at Buck Creek UMC as we grew up---remembering the first time he sang "He Touched Me"---beautiful !!! Remembering him as one of the "hardest working men" ever, cutting timber, etc. He is with Jesus now--may that give his loved ones Peace! We will see him again !
