I feel so previledged to have met Vi at her home!! She was such a very sweet and very caring woman; always waiting on you and making sure your needs and wants were being taken of when ever u were visiting her. She had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh!!She was also a VERY Hard working woman!!She has indeed passed on these exact characteristics unto her children from the ones that I have the honor of knowing. I am sorry for your loss, yet happy she did not have to be in pain a lot. May you find comfort in know she is in the arms now of Jesus, her Savior.' .... And they shall rise up and call her Blessed" Proverbs

Mom, you are the greatest, you have taught me so many things in my life. When you were in the nursing home (even when you asked when can I go home) you kept saying I don't do anything anymore. And I would reply, Mom, you teach me some thing everyday. How to live and be so kind, never complain or say a harsh word to or about anyone. Always was fine. You are teaching me still today, be strong. Hugs and kisses. I love you. ( just like every day when I had to leave you) I will see you again.
