Monique & Scott,
Your Grandmother was such a fine person. Aunt V. was so kind, I loved her so, her twinkling eyes and beautiful smile lit up the room. I greatly admired her and her quilts, her quilting reflected her strong character. Aunt V. deeply loved her family.

Viola (and Ken) were not only neighbors and dear friends, but we also grew up with them in church at Meadow Hill. We cared for them a lot as did our parents and they loved us as well. Hate to say good-bye to Viola but she is leaving her earthly home for a much nicer one - Thinking of her family during this time.
