Viola will be missed very deeply. I wish I could have gotten back to see her before her passing. I thought of her and loved her very much. There will always be a special place in my heart. I will always remember my trip to Victoria Tx with her and Hines. All of my prayers are with the family.Gods Blessing. Jeannie D. Schwalbe

My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. She was a grand lady in my book. I will never forget all the times spent with her and Hines when I was growing up or the special love and freindship she shared with my mother (Mae) and father. She was very special.
