You are the most amazing aunt a niece could ever ask for. I loved our talks, and your laughter and smile was contagious...especially when all the Holcombe girls were together. Heaven has gained an angel who will truly be missed here on Earth. Uncle Bobby, Bobby Jr., Wes and Steve...you are all in my thoughts and prayers...what a truly remarkable woman your mother was!

What a fantastic aunt to have had all of my life. Vivian's smile and calming attitude has made so many of my days brighter. I love my aunt very much and am so lucky to have this beautiful lady as part of our family. Her flowers amplified her personality and she has made such a difference in so many lives we will have a huge empty space in our hearts forever.
