I remember her very well. I bowled with her and always enjoyed being around her. She was soft spoken but had a great laugh.

Vivian and Bud were such good friends of my folks Al and Ginny. I hope they’re all enjoying each other at that big breakfast table up above

I remember Vivian well . She was a neat Lady . As a young boy , she sold me my first Pocket knife . Many years later I drank Coffee with her and friends at Hardings on Anderson street . After that I would stop by the store , and watch her do her big puzzles . We would talk about her store cat , and her Buick car . I’ll miss our conversations . Rest in peace my friend .

Vivian was my next door neighbor. I called her my lady. She always made a fancy birthday cake for my birthday. I have very fond memories of her and Bud. My condolences to her family and friends.
