To Aunt Viv’s Family
We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Viv’s passing. Cheryl I remember staying at your place and how kind your mother always was to me. Curtis and I had just talked about going to see her just a couple of days before she passed, now we are upset because we did not get there. Remember all the good times to help get you through this upsetting time. Take care.
Cheryl & Byron, I was very sad to learn of Aunt Viv’s passing. She was always a kind person and very fashionable. She loved you both with all her heart, so remember her for that. I just feel good that I was able to visit her a few days before, that she knew me and smiled so widely when she saw me. I’m thankful I got to kiss her goodbye. Just know ‘Mom & Dad’ are together again, remember their love for you.
Leon & Norma Robertson

Dear Cheryl and Ralph,
We are saddened to hear about the passing of Vivian, our dear friend for a lot of years. We have fond memories of visiting with both her and your dad in their home and playing board games with them and visits when we just had great conversation and, of course, no one left their house without having some of Vivian’s great food !! There was a lot of laughter during those times. Your mum was a great testimony of how a Christian should live their life. She will be missed, but she is where she wanted to be at the end of her life on earth, with Jesus in heaven, so please take comfort in that.
Love and Prayers, Matthew & Sandy

We were so sorry to hear that we have lost such a great lady. Our loss is heaven’s gain. Vivian and Robie were so instrumental in our early christian life. They nurtured us and demonstrated how joyful a life devoted to Christ could be. Vivian was always busy and so full of energy, I have no doubt, she is probably polishing those streets of gold, as we speak. Til we meet again, dear friend.
Cheryl, Bryon, Jennifer,
It was my pleasure to have had Vivian (Viv as I called her) as my dearest friend. I enjoyed her company so much. Our lunch dates and visits meant so much to me and my Mom, Aunt Ruth and Aunt Dot. Viv was always young at heart, loved her jewellery and the latest fashions. And of course her sweet sounding laugh was infectious. Her strong faith in God was inspiring. It was a pleasure to have known her. My sincere condolences to Viv’s family. Sincerely, Susan MacLeod
