  1. I worked with Viv at Ben Franklin when I was in High School (just a “few” years ago 😂). She was caring, fun and a great friend. I’m sure she stayed that way always. God bless you, Viv. And God bless your family.

  2. Always a smile with a twinkle in your eye. I will always remember you this way. Rest dear Aunt Vivian thank you for the memories.
