Tomorrow will be one week since you got your wings mom. I really hope your family reunion was great but I miss you terribly. Sue and I never did get you to the Butterfly Palace because you got too sick so fast. You kept saying maybe another day, but that day didn't come. Hope you are able to enjoy all the butterflies you want now.

When I talked to her in the hospital she told me she thought she could fight this, I could tell in her voice she sounded weak. I sure hope she could. I will miss our phone calls and conversations, I love you, you're with you're siblings again and parents, give my mom and Dad a big hug for me, I love you forever, and too the family, I'm so sorry for your loss, I know what you're going through, my heart still hurting from losing my mom. I love you all. And keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers

Aunt Vi was an incredible woman that won my heart at the ripe age of 4. My first memories of Aunt Vi, Uncle George, my cousins Kathy and Susan, are when they arrived in Michigan for a wedding in the late 70's. I don't remember who's or the wedding it self, but I remember the excitement my mom had that they came to visit us. Personally my fondest memories are when Aunt Vi would write letters or call me. As frequent as it was she was always positive, offered words of encouragement, and inspiration. After every call or letter received I always felt genuinely loved, revered, and appreciated. Always facinated by her strong commitment to our family's genealogy, she took great pride in sharing her knowledge any time she could. She was the go-to person for any questions related to the history of the family. Aunt Vi's love for her closest family members was definitely noticed and admired. Most recently I was honored to offer her my prayers and encouragement up to her final months on earth. Now I offer the family my prayers for strength, comfort, and peace in our time of sorrow. Aunt Vi will be missed dearly by all who knew her, but know that she was a tool of God. Aunt Vi touched so many lives while on earth doing God's work and now she has reached salvation. Being the last to earn her wings to heaven of her siblings, I pray she takes my love to all that await us- within the gates of heaven. Rest in peace Aunt Vi, please tell my mom I miss her and love her! Thank you to the family for offering this forum enabling those of us who cherished Aunt Vi to offer thoughts, and memories, and condolences. ~Shawn Weiss
