    I am so sorry to hear of Virginia’s passing. I was a friend and co-worker of Frank, and occasionally spoke and communicated with Virginia. I always thought she was a wonderful person, so kind and gentle. But she did have a streak that she called “her Irish” that she flashed on occasion! We had drifted out of touch these last few years. And I regret not sitting down and having a glass of wine with her! My condolences to her family. Good bye, Virginia!
