Ruby our thoughts and prayers are with you. I remember Virgil from working with Grandpa Lesnar. They also had quarters for an extra soda. Much love to you.

Ruby, I was so sorry to hear about Virgil. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this tough time. When mom called and told me Saturday my first thought was I wondered how much trouble Grandpa and Virgil were getting into now! Love, Jenni
