Finally home...
Susan and I had the pleasure of going with John to the grave site and to help him run a few errands Friday. We then traveled up to Christiansburg and spent the night with dear friends to try and unwind from the events of Wednesday and Thursday. We are both exhausted and looking forward to a day of rest tomorrow.

It was great to spend time with the family at BW's. We miss you all so much. The reason we were all gathered was horrible, but seeing so much of the family made it bearable. We love you all.

I am on board with this as well.
I was planning on taking a area on the trailer and start a Fallen Members List. With message board name and date. I also would like to come up with a special logo that only we would know and add that to a new Wilk Hall t shirt.
Just my thoughts I welcome yours.

I'd be happy to contribute to some sort of memorial we could display at WH
I'm not very creative when it comes to designing something but if we wanted to do something to honor our friends, I'm in with some $$.

Agree with 1995 and chili - I have no idea what to say. Awful news.**

Honoring our lost Wilk Hall members.
I was wondering if we should, and how we might, honor our lost Wilk Hall family members. Some sort of memorial at the tailgates. Maybe a frame with their pictures, or maybe a decorated tailgate chair. Or maybe just a toast before we do the Good Old Song. I don't know. I'm just truly stunned right now.

For Uncle Ronnie, Sarge, and Ginger:
Go Hoos!!

I am shocked. What an awful week.
We knew Sarge was coming, but this news just stunned us. I can't imagine how it must be for John. Wish I knew what to say.

There is a hole in my heart...
As much as it seems unimportant at this time... I hope the Hoos stomp a mudhole in the Chokies and Ginger is looking down and smiling on them. She loved her husband dearly, her Wilk Hall family and her Hoos. Rest in peace lovely lady. You are already missed.

Re the passing of MSGHoofan, the outpouring of affection on the Sabre...
Is quite special, especially the small anecdotes about Al/“Sarge”. I encourage you to go to the football, basketball and Corner message boards, if you haven’t already done so. As much as possible, I will try to share these with his family at the funeral service on Friday.

However, even if you didn’t know him except through these boards or only had a brief encounter with him through Wilk Hall tailgates and sports events, please don’t hesitate to share those memories with his family through the on-line condolences at the link below.

Also, here is a photo of our last time together in downtown Charlottesville drowning our sorrows with bourbon and beer following the UVA-BC football game. This was also the day of the last Wilk Hall tailgate Al attended. Wahoo-Wah forever!

Saw on facebook, such a shame...
I remember tailgating with Sarge before we moved over to U-Hall lots, what a great guy.
