  1. I remember aunt Vi from being a little brat. Always had jam and peanut butter sandwiches when I got to much. Always one to cook up a storm, it just seemed to appear. She will be missed.

  2. I am going to miss this beautiful lady. We chatted a lot about her dog Waldo and my dog Tia. May you R.I.P. My condolences to her family, she will be missed.

  3. We will all miss aunt Vi. We sure had many good times during her visits to our home. Also enjoyed the times we were welcomed to her home. Our condolences to uncle Len and uncle Dan, and all my cousins.
    Hugs and love to all my family……..Jack and Elaine.

  4. Aunt Vi was a very special lady, and she and Uncle Les will always be remembered. She and I shared a love of all God’s creatures, especially our dogs and cats. She, like myself, could never turn away a stray. We also shared our birthday – May 11th, which always made me feel closer to her, despite the distance between us.
