Pallbearers will be Glenn Fondren, Rick Arrington, Buddy Pickel, Michael Clemmer, Mark Clemmer and Rocky Goode.
Words can't express the pain I felt when I heard about Mr.Virgil. One of the most precious men that ever walked. One thing I feel sure about is that he is in no pain and can remember what he wants to now because he was a man of God. I love each of you. May God continue to bless you and give you peace. Love,Vickie
