I have many great memories of Vi. First that comes to mind is a camping trip to the great sand dunes in Colorado over 20 some years ago. She and I made it to the top of the highest dune it took hours to climb and minutes to run back down. Many good memories. Look forward to seeing her in the resurrection.

A long time ago, I was a teenager, Aunt Violet came to our house to visit my mom. She was sad about something, I wasnt privy to what, but what I remember is how amazing she looked. Dressed to kill and with amazing bright red lipstick. She was just striking. I remarked, Aunt Violet, youre beautiful. That has since and always will be the picture of her in my head.
