Death of a Salesman

Wednesday, 20-Jul-2011 - Amelith - I helped bury my brother Virgil today. I mourn his passing, but find peace knowing that he is now with the Lord. I gained strength from all the love and positive energy around me while I was in Amelith. Virgil passed away on Friday, 15-July in a tragic accident. Although Virgil was in a confused state of mind these last weeks and months, and at other times in his adult life, I have fond memories of him as a brother and a friend. I will continue to miss him.
