I was just watching a DVD of the first season of A Different World and noticed in the credits the name Maynard C. Virgil, Stage Manager. This stood out to me because my last name is also Virgil. The other thing that caught my attention was the fact that his name was Maynard and my oldest brother went by his middle name Raynard (he passed in June 22, 2006 also at the age of 59 of a heart attack). When I googled Maynard C. Virgil, it immediately saddened me to see the words obituary. I could so relate to the words of his sister being in disbelief of his passing. I never say I know what anyone else is or has gone through, but for me the loss of my brother was a hurt I never anticipated.

Though I never knew Maynard, my prayers go out to his family and all that loved him. I still grieve my brother and the only comfort I can find is through God's Spirit. So I pray that His Spirit has and will continue to give comfort to Maynard's family as well.

Because my parents taught us that we do live again, I won't say R.I.P., but I will say that I pray that Maynard he will Live In Peace.

I'm sorry to say that i just found out about my friend Maynard today. Not only was he responsible for my surviving in Los Angeles during the mid 90's, most of my work on TV came directly through Maynard, i wasn't with central or any other casting he would call me if he need me and allowed me to call him when i needed work. Maynard had a big heart in fact a few times when i became a single parent with 2 child Maynard let me have my children with me all day on the set so i could continue to earn a living. Also later Maynard let participate in his acting class for free until i could afford it. TRUE STORY!!!

R.I.P and Thanks for everything with LOVE and Sadness Voice Rogers

This brother gave my first television job on "It's a Different World." My career has spanned over the last 2 and a half decades. He believed in me and took a chance and I'll be forever grateful.

I just found out today that Maynard passed in July...I met Maynard C. Virgil at the Ms. Black America Pageant in Gary, Indiana many years ago. He was directing the recording of the pageant for TV. We kept in touch off & on over the years. It was evident that he loved what he did and was a creative talent. I followed his career and he even assited me with mine at one point.The last time we spoke was some time ago but Maynard always remained a special friend to me. I will remember him fondly. He was a good friend and he had many friends. He was a great person and had a lot of class! I extend my condolences to his family and friends. May your memories bring you some comfort at any time you think of him...keeping you all in my prayers.
