Vivian was a wonderfully kind and giving person. She had a heart of gold,which is a rare thing to find in our trying times. Her absence will be felt by all who knew her. We loved her and will miss her, but are confident we will see her again. Our deepest sympathy goes to Gail and Cathy and family. Love from her family in Oregon and Washington.
