    Virgil was a great conversationalist – always having a quick story, or a bit of wisdom to empart every time we spoke. We always saw him, at the entrance to Encounter Church, greeting each person with a handshake and a smile as they came in the door. There was just something about his demeanor that made everyone feel welcome from the start.

    We are very blessed to have been able to get to know him.
    He will truly be missed.

    You are so very missed and loved here on earth. I can not wait to see you in heaven with no more pain in your shoulder and that smile we were greeted with each Sunday morning. You are truly missed and loved.
