  1. Dan I am so sorry for your families loss. Your Dad was a very fine man. He was a man who worked hard to provide for his family. We both know how much time he spent at your Lake Weatherford cabin so that it would be ready when the family arrived. He worked hard to become a successful business man. He was a man of faith and loved being a Christian. He loved Gospel music. The Virgil I knew was so proud of you Dan, and the man that you became. it was a pleasure to have known your Father..I can honestly say I learned a lot from him. God Bless your family.
