An excerpt from Herb’s letter:

Thank you for the invitation to FLY WITH THE HOOS to Tallahassee,Florida on February 26th. My wife, Jackie, and I are delighted toaccept the invitation… When we arrived home late Saturday evening and found your letter noting”you and a guest.” we really got excited. We have been fans since theearly sixties when I attended UVA, but the real Superfan is my wife,Jackie. We have had season tickets in section 130 of Scott Stadium formore years than we can remember, and this was the game to say goodbye toall of the good folks that we have enjoyed being around at home gamesfor many years. This lucky invitation and that wonderful sixth game winover Buffalo, brightened the day… Thanks again, and Go Hoos.

Warmest regards,
