I was saddened to learn of Virgil's passing. He was my friend. I met him I was an announcer at KWCB and he did a "Morning Devotional" program. He was kind, friendly and displayed a Christian attitude. I want to extend my sympathy to Mrs. Weathers, a kind and gracious lady. My thoughts will be with the Weathers.
