Our deepest sympathy to the family. Aunt Violet was and always will be the best person I've ever known. She surely will be missed. Our fondest memories are when Aunt Violet and Uncle George came up to Michigan to visit and the way she helped me when my dad was in the hospital. All the late night talks really helped us get to know each other. She will be greatly missed. With all our love.

Mom & Dad made some mistakes like all parents do. But they were forgiven and forgotten many years ago. They both were the very best parents a person could ever have . My heart is truly broken to see them go and miss them dearly. I have only good memories now of my Mother , Father , and Sister. I am looking forward to the day I will be with them in Heaven.

My prayers are with Violet's family. I have fond memories of visiting with Uncle George and Aunt Violet and the kids (and Grandpa John). Aunt Violet was always so nice and had such a beautiful smile and made us feel so welcome!
Some day I'll see her again in heaven!

I'm sorry for Violet's passing. Her picture is just like I remember her. I did not know that Sandy and Rosie had passed on. You all have my sympathy and that of my siblings. Perhaps Violet will meet my daughter, Veronica, who went to heaven on 12/12/12. Losing any family member is always very sad for everyone. You all have my sympathy and prayers.
