What a loss it is to have Aunt Vi pass away.  I know it is inevitable but it is still a loss.  She was Always one of my favorite Aunts.  What wonderful memories of her and I talking and laughing about different things.  She was a jewell !  She had a kind heart and a loving shoulder to talk and cry on. At least now...she is in no pain but she has left a huge void here.  
Sending our condolences to all the family and may all of the families know...We are sending out love and may God be with all of you with the loss of your "mom, grandmother and relatives-near and far.  Will miss you Aunt Vi !
