I did not know Virginia well. We were both quiet and shy in TFHS class of 1960, yet Virginia made a lasting impression even then. Learning that she was a nurse at Poet's Seat assured me that many people benefitted by her unselfish, unassuming love. My deepest sympathy to you her family and friends. Carol Girard-Barton
