May God’s peace and blessings be yours during this most tender season; and, may He give you many lovely memories, so that you may always have roses in December.

Ever hoping . . .
Always in Jesus,

Vivian had a distinct voice of calmness and spoke with love in her heart. It made perfect sense to me that she was not only my mother’s first cousin, but best of friends! How blessed you all were to keep her for so long! I’m sure she will be sorely missed, but will live on in all she has taught! May she rest in eternal peace.

Our love and prayers for you all as you celebrate a life well lived. I still can look back as a young girl and remember how excited I would be to visit your home on the hill and your moms laughter. As an adult David and I still remember the visit to Florida from the sisters as one of our best times with guests ever. Be blessed as you remember all the special times. Till me all meet again, Aunt Vivian!

Vivian will always be in my heart. She was always passing out her love, and never knew a stranger. She always called me Ruthie Baby and I loved it and then we would laugh.
She had created so many memories, and will be greatly missed. Love, Ruthie Baby {-:}~
