It is with my deepest sympathy that I send my condolences to the rest of the Azar and Petros family. My Aunt Virginia was a very dear lady and a very special woman in my life.

I never had the fortune to meet my grand mother and my grand father passed away when I was a little girl. It was through Aunt Virginia that I learned about the Azar side of the family and became proud of my Lebanese heritage. She use to tell me stories about the ìold countryî and shared my family recipes with me for kibbeh and tabouleh ñ telling me how important it was that I learn to cook so the recipes would never be lost.

I will always treasure the time I spent with her over the years. My sister Catherine and I looked forward every summer to our trips to Washington D. C. to visit her and Johnny. Later I spent time with her in Wheeling and she cared for us when my mother was away in England. After I left for college I wrote her and called her as often as I could. She was the closest thing I had in my life to a grand parent for a very long time and she will be greatly missed.

Please feel free to contact me for anything. In the end, family is the most important thingÖ
