Vivian was such a special woman. I am going to miss her terribly. She became like a grandmother to my daughter. We loved her so. She had a wonderful sense of humor. My most favorite, funny memory is her calling me after 9 pm and saying " Hello, did I wake you? If so this isn't me ". She was so stinking cute! We will miss you! Vivian we will meet again sweet lady. I love you!
