On behalf of my brother and his family:

I am Uncle Awesomeness! At least that is the name that Tori knows me by. Tori is my 4 month old niece who is growing up to be a beautiful, intelligent, and scintillating (brilliant, dazzling) little girl. Up until recently she has had everything in the world she could ever want. A great home in South Florida, lots of toys, two older siblings that love to play with her (if you count Boston Terriers), and the two best parents anyone could ask for.

God called her daddy - my brother - to Heaven yesterday (Tuesday, November 10, 2015). He was on a business trip working hard far from home when the charter flight he was on crashed into an apartment building in Akron, Ohio. No one on the plane survived.   T Jay Virgin, 31, lived and died providing for Andrea and Tori. It is heart wrenching that Tori will grow up without her daddy.

Please help Uncle Awesomeness raise the price of a college education for Tori. This guy needs a village to help raise his big brother’s daughter. I love him and miss him. My love and appreciation goes out to anyone willing to help. Thank You.

On Wednesday my brother was laid to rest. Although, it was the hardest thing I've ever had to endure, it brings comfort knowing he is now home close to Andrea and Tori.
Until we see you again...We love you T. Jay!!!

Its a little late but, in honor of T.Jay's healthy lifestyle, "The Rooster Crew", friends and family joined at 6:00am this past Tuesday the 17th next to the beach for an endurance wod (interval sprints). Together we pressed through the workout and ended with a celebration and prayer. Thank you T.Jay for giving us strength and for bringing us together. Oh, and some of us learned what blisters and shin splints are and how we can avoid these with regular exercise.

A special message from Mom

To all,

There is nothing more special than your children, family and friends. Life is so precious, please take a moment today to reflect on those you love, reach out to them, spend time with them and share your love. T.Jay gave so much joy and happiness to so many, with your ongoing support T.Jay's legacy will go on in our memories and through his beautiful daughter, Tori. Thank you for your support and for the very special messages as each one helps all of us get through to the next moment.

T.Jay, I will love you to eternity and I will carry your in my heart until we see each other again.

Zach and Elijah, I love you and cherish every moment we have together. I wish I could keep you to myself but how selfish this would be to not share you with the rest of the world. I know how much you love T.Jay and you too will carry on his legacy....both of you are just as amazing as your brother, just look around you, listen and accept that the love you recieve as a representation of how amazing you are and how the love you give and share is recieved by others.

Andrea, T. Jay chose you...need I say more about how amazing you are. I will love and be there for you and Tori forever.

Kelli and Janny, Zach and Elijah blessed me the day you came into our lives. I know you are there for my son's and I am so gracious for your love. You have a beautiful relationship with Andrea and Tori hold onto this and continue to support each other. How blessed I am to have such incredible daughter-in-laws, Andrea, Kelli and Janny, something I prayed for as I raised my sons.

With all my love,
Mom
