I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Vivian's passing. I went to see Mawmaw yesterday and she told me. I hate that I wasn't able to come to the visitation to speak to you all, but know that I'm thinking of you.

I met Mimi when my son married her granddaughter Ashley. A very loving and kind lady. We had a cookout at my house one week and Mimi was talking to my sister-in-law and everyone thought she was just being friendly like she always was. It turned out my sister-in-law was her hair stylist and they had known each other for years. You meet your friends in the strangest places. She will be missed. Rest in peace Mimi.
