Dear Sweet Virgie and family: I am so sorry for your loss and that I can't be with you at this time.
When we lose loved ones, it's so difficult to not be able to see them in the places they used to be. Just know that Lee is with Jesus today and healthy again. I hope that the wonderful memories of your many years of married life together will sustain you. You can be proud of a marriage that endured so long in this day and age! We, your classmates, continue to pray for your strength and that of your family on this journey. I will be in touch with you shortly, and know I'm as near as a phone call away. Love and prayers, Geri
