Virginia was such a wonderful human being with my memory of her and the King family reaching back to 1967. We all grew closer given we shared time and space in Ottawa at each others homes in days gone by. I would like to express condolences from the Vic and Billie Pelletier Family to the Kings. God Bless you all.
