My favorite memory of my Aunt Vivian was my very first memory of her. I was 5-6 years old when she came to "meet the family" at our annual Easter Dinner. I remember she brought two white cream bunnies with cotton ball tails for my sister and myself. I was fascinated with the tail. I kept that bunny on my dresser for many years
I thought this lady who came from New York was very glamorous. My Uncle Bill seemed very taken with her. Vivian later told me I was quite jealous of her because "she was taking my Uncle Bill away from me". However, she won me over with her charm and kindness. I have many more wonderful memories of time spent with her.
