What a precious lady. So many memories of her and the whole family from "back in the day" when we were all so much younger. Favorite dinner at her table....bowtie noodles and little English peas!! Remember that Vicki? Vi running through the house (she NEVER walked) calling "Eddie, Eddie!" Vi, Jean and Tot sitting around the table laughing and talking (all at the same time!)
I hope you all know that old friends remember you and are thinking of you at this time. May God bless and comfort you during this hard time. Just know that He is enjoying Vi's company and have many good laughs with her right now.
Love and prayers,
Polly Hammett
