Vivian my sweet and kind friend, we met and became friends as coworkers at W T HENNING SCHOOL. I enjoyed your friendship and our daughters were good friends. I know you are at rest and I have prayed for you and your beautiful children. Dementia is such a terrible process as I lost my husband to it over a year ago. See you again sweet friend.

Ms Viv was such a special lady. I really loved this woman. I remember when all the family came to stay with me when Rita hit. I must have gained 25 lbs in three weeks from her cooking. My stove was in shock from all the use. She always made Trudy call and check on me when she saw there were storms in Alabama. When I think of her it will be of all the happy times we spent together. Heaven got a “Special Angel “ today.
