    I was feeling nostalgic this morning and googled Virginia A. Harcus and came to this website. If Virginia is the infamous “Granny” from the early days of the Bellevue Community College cafeteria, then I need to pass on my condolences and best wishes. Strangely, I have little memory of Leslie (Les?) but a host of memories of Virginia (sorry, you will always be Granny to me, given that I was responsible for the nickname)mentoring me on the proper way to provide catering services, while I struggled with what I was doing in school, my love life, etc.
    Again, I am so sorry for your loss and, if you wish, I can be contacted at 403-860-4983 or via email at nicholsben2012 “at” gmail.com. (substitute @ for “at”) I would be very happy if this found you healthy and well.
