So sorry to hear about Mrs. Virgie! I remember her from when I was a little girl at Bethel Baptist Church. I loved her then and was so happy to work with her at NCMH. Such a sweet lady!

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. We will miss her greatly in the neighborhood. Always thought of her as the grandmother I never had. Enjoyed our talks and visits tremendously. A very caring and loving person. God Bless all of you!

I am so sorry for your loss of Mrs. Virgie. In the brief time that I knew her, I learned to love her! She will be missed but my heart and faith won't let me be sad as I imagine the joy she now knows as she reunites with Cathy and Jack and so many others! You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Much love,

Aunt Virgie was very special to us. We will always cherish our memories. We are so blessed to have a video of her playing the piano and singing "How Great Thou Art" with our special needs son. She will be greatly missed by all.

Virgie was very special to all of us at Palmetto Health Hospice. I worked with Virgie for years and then had the privilege of caring for her. She was a very kind person and always putting others before herself. She will be greatly missed.
