Vivian became more than a good friend , she was a teacher, mother figure, and most of all a counselor. She renewed my faith and guided me to forgive. Her truly unconditional love will be missed. We shared her memories laughed and cried and she even fussed at me for cussing. I will forever carry the lessons she taught. She was kind enough to share her life with me allowing me to care for her during the last several months I was so honored to do so.
Prayers for peace and comfort for Vernon, Stephen and the family. Love you all.....

Dear family: My heart and prayers are with all of you during this time of great loss! I truly share in your grief as Vivian was one of my closest friends for almost 60 years! We shared many good times together...and during the hard times I could always count on her to be there for me! She was an inspiration to all those who knew her! She will ALWAYS be missed but knowing she is in her Heavenly home with no more suffering makes the loss easier to bear! May God comfort you and give you complete peace during this difficult time! My love to all!
