My condolences to the family. I remember Vi from our many many years at St. John Riverdale. We may have served on several committee together. But the one thing that really stands out. My first wife, (Sara Spangler) and I were in the final stages of adoption in 1978 when we had a meeting at the PG County Department of Social Services. While waiting to meet with our counselor I remember Vi coming up to us and surprising us. That baby is now 42 and the mother of 2. I also remember working with Leroy at RFK stadium as ushers for the Washington Football team. Also, his time with the Bowie Knights of Harmony. We are sorry for your loss.
