    Virginia and I spent a lot of time together, starting after Ernie’s death. We took lots of trips together and spent many evenings just driving around Douglas county. When she comes to mind the first thing I think of is her laughter. She was a delightful companion. I’ll be joining her again someday and we will laugh some more.
