One of the most kindness person I ever met. I can’t ever remember a moment that she wasn’t smiling. She will be truly missed.

Vivian was the most amazing sister. When I was young she and Mike became parental figures in my life. She had the patience of Job, coping with a moody ten year old. Though the miles separated us, she was always near. She never missed a birthday, Christmas or Easter through cards and letters. Her ability to rise above her pain inspired me. The magnificent consolation I have is I will meet her again in heaven. Rest in Peace my dearest sister. I love you.
