Hello,

The last time I visited Virginia it was just passing through in the year 2001 as I was heading down to South Carolina with my father’s sister to meet some of their relatives in person during the Christmas holiday. Before then, in the year 1996 Virginia was one of the state’s that I traveled to with a family associate who had a job delivering shipments to different locations on those tractor trailers.

We ate down there at a fast food restaurant and the food tasted even fresher compared to New York where I am from. Virginia even looked so much cleaner than New York as did the other states we had visited. But Virginia has a special place in my heart because that’s where my family came from and they were all over from Halifax, Danville, Richmond to Chesapeake.

I at one time thought about maybe one day moving down there after I eventually retire but I am a native New Yorker and so use to the city I don’t ever want to leave New York.

Thank you for sharing I hope you’re enjoying your life down there. Maybe one day I’ll get to visit some of my distant relatives as most of my closest and most immediate ones have passed on now.
