We are so sorry to hear of Viola's passing. It must have been at Viola's 90th birthday party since I last talked to her. Vi was my mother's (Florence)cousin. Our condolences, Roy & Zella

I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in the Holy Scriptures which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Vi was a wonderful person and an artistic painter. I will treasure the fond memories of swimming in her pool with my cousins, Ed & Rod, and of her giving me a chance when no one else would.
