Message: I am employed by the Kentucky TB. Control Program. Your site is very interesting, and I think it is extremely endearing for you to create a memorial page in Waverly's honor and the honor of the patients that once resided there. Thank you!

Message:  Many years ago, around 1950, a young man I was engaged to had lung surgery there. His name was Virgil Stallings. He was a loving and wonderful man. He was killed in an auto accident before we could be married. He always told me his treatment there was the "best." Thanks to everyone who is saving this piece of so many peoples history.
