  1. Dear Mr. Babinchak and family: I was deeply saddened to see that Virginia had passed away. I am still on family leave from the hospital, but want you to know that I will miss seeing the two of you every Wednesday. Virginia was a very gracious lady and I have enjoyed working with her over the years. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. God bless each of you. Sincerely, Sheila Orlando
