A day that we all know will come to meet us all, but knowing will never ease the pain of losing a very loving, caring person, that my Aunt Viva was. I hate using the word was because it represents the past. My Aunt Viva will always be in my heart until that day The Good Lord comes for me. To my cousins, Faye, Glenda and Annette thank you for always being there for her, especially the last ten years. Alzheimer's, as we all know, is not a forgiving disease, it can affect the entire family. Your mom could not ask for better daughters that also became extended caregivers. She was so blessed to have the FAMILY that Loved her so much. Our hearts are in a deep dark place today but knowing that those white haired sisters are together again in heaven brings a lot of joy to my heart. I LOVE YOU AUNT VIVA , I LOVE YOU ALL.

Bobby and Violet
