Aunt Viola (Gigi) you are already greatly missed. I will never forget the day you, me and Roy were talking and how you said you wanted to be called Gigi so Roy and I told you that was going to be our special name for you and staring that day we would start calling you Gigi and you said okay. When we would see you we would say “Hi Gigi!” and you would give us this huge smile and would tell us “Yes I’m Gigi!” Thank you for all of the beautiful memories. Love you. Fly hi with the angels Gigi until we meet again. 💛
