Aunt Vivian, I will miss you. I will miss your visits to me at the hotel on your way up and down the hiway when you went to Sioux Falls to visit Donavon and his family. I will never forget the way that you always included me in everything. Pain free and happy, holding and caring for our precious baby Lily. Rest in peace in the arms of Jesus.
