  1. Mary & Buell, My deepest condolences, Both, Virginia and Charlie were close and true friends to me and my late husband Dick. At Mah Jongg we speak of Virginia all the time, she was the only one that would not need a card to play, she remembered the card by heart. Virginia and I were partners at St. Vincent de Paul C.C. in “The Villages” and did everything together, God bless her and may Virginia rest in peace! Carol Jakubiak

    Virginia was a wonderful friend to me, especially after my husband died shortly after Charlie. Virginia was one of the very special people who were there for me at a difficult time. We also enjoyed many happy times together—especially at theatre. I always enjoyed our discussions of plays we attended as well as the books we read for book club. Although Virginia will be missed I shall always have fond memories of our times together.
    My condolences to all the family.
