    My memories of Vivian and Ray go back many years. I’m grateful that she is with her precious Savior who she loved dearly. She touched many lives over the years. May God’s grace and comfort be with family who are on the grief journey after losing her.

    I got to know Vivan through buying Cranberries from her vegetable barn. One day she asked me to sponsor her walk for Alzheimer’s. She related the story about how her father ( a pastor) got the disease & he never forgot one passage of the Bible. I became a sponsor for her all these years that I have lived in Big Flats. She will be missed in our little community. I will continue to give to Alzheimer’s in her memory. May you rest by your father. In Christain Love Penny Ross
