My condolences to the family. I am saddened by her passing and sorry I did not make it to reunite with her and the family before this. I am a cousin who has not seen her for years. My dad was her dad's youngest brother. My dad so loved all of his family, especially John Van Aken and talked of Vivian often when I was a child. May you have wonderful and special memories to help fill the void of her presence at this time. It is always very difficult to have a loved one pass from this physical life. Praying for the pain to lessen with each day.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was so good to Amy and I, years ago, when we would come to your house to play or stay overnight. My thoughts are with you all.

Really enjoyed getting to know Vivian over the last several months. Lively conversations about the world, the markets and her card playing brought a smile to my face. Glad she was able to make the trip out West with her daughters. She faced her fate with a grit in which all can find comfort.
