Vi and I worked together at Texas International Imports for many years and became friends. I visited her and Rollo at the house and took my grand babies to see her and always went by for treat or treat during the season. She was a delightful lady and I am sure the Lord gave her a big welcome hug. Got another Angel in heaven.
