My Mother-in-law was a special lady to many people…none more than me.
She welcomed me into her family and fed me every chance she could.
She was a hugger and hugged me every time we met. Those hugs will be missed…
A godly woman who loved God above all else and was not afraid to pass on to her forever resting place…
Rest In Peace MawMaw

We have been so blessed to have known Mrs Vivian! She was always such a delight. Her boundless energy and her gregarious personality was a hallmark of her life. She loved her family with abandon. She never met a stranger! She lived a full, long life filled with her love of Jesus! She raised her family to live for our Lord and set the example. It was a joy to have known her. Dan & Peggy Jones( Landreth).

Vivian was one of the sweetest Christian ladies you will meet . She had a heart for God and others. She would ask prayer for many in Sunday school. Her personality was so positive and full of joy. I will miss her and her prayers. God bless the family.
