    Cassandra and family please accept our condolence. Your Mom was beautiful with an infectious smile that warmed my heart whenever I saw her.
    Mighty GOD please surround this family and comfort them during Mrs. Gibson transition. We are sending love and spiritual hugs to you all.

    To the family of Virgilan, I send you my sincerest condolences. When I found out Virgilan was my cousin. It was if we had known her forever, she was always embracing and loving. What I sincerely appreciate is that Virgilan embraced my Auntie Algernon (Snookie) and Algernon loved Virgilan. So appreciate this connection.
    Please take care and Virgilan will always be in my prayers. I will be praying for her Eternal Enlightment.
    Love Ya’ll,
    Cousin Karen
