It is so sad to lose the last of 5 Aunts. Aunt Vi was an inspiration to me with her devotion to cousin Henry. I know she is in a better place and Henry and Bobby are so happy to see her.
My thoughts and prayers are with your whole family. Love to you all.
Pat, My sympathy in the loss of your mother. I remember sweet Vi and that great smile of hers. May our Lord comfort you and your family.
