To Viola's Family,
Sorry I couldn't be with you on the day of Viola's service but I was out of town. She was one of the kindest people I ever knew with a heart as big as all outdoors. Always a warm smile and a genuine concern for others. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her. Keep her memory in your hearts and she will be with you always. May she rest in peace.

I wish I could be home with you all today, my heart hurts to think that when I come home again aunt viola and pop won’t be there but I do know they are both always here with me now. Aunt viola was always so happy with the brightest smile every time I saw her, always with the biggest hugs and would kiss your face. I still can’t seem to find all the words I want to say, it’s still surreal to me. I will always love you and miss you even more aunt Viola. To everyone at home I haven’t stopped thinking about any of you and I know how hard this day is. I love and miss you all.

Love Kayla Rose

For my cousins Shelley, Ronnie, Jamie, and family,

Please know that since hearing about the passing of my sweet Aunt Viola (Your Mom) ... you and your family have been in my thoughts. Losing a parent is beyond comprehension for me so I can only imagine the pain you must be feeling right now. Shelley, words can’t express how much my heart literally aches for you and your brothers. Being the thoughtful and caring person Aunt Viola was, she would never want her children to carry such a heavy heart and she would do anything to ease your pain and leave smiles on your faces. So please focus on how fortunate you were to have had the wonderful mom you had and cherish every sweet memory of her.
Personally, for me, it was her contagious smile. Her face literally lit up whenever I saw her and her warm embrace I’ll never forget.
Thinking of you and wishing I could be there during this difficult time. ❤️
Your cousin,
Sonya 🌷

Hugs to Colby from Joshua 💙

For my Dad, Aunt Reta, Aunt Gladys, Uncle Ron, Uncle Harold, Uncle David and Aunt Isabelle,
Hoping that memories you share with each of your beloved sister helps support one other during your time of grief.
Wish I could be there with you all.
Hugs ❤️
