    Heaven has received one of our true southern ladies. There has never been a more gracious lady. I spent time at their house during summers, Linda Hooper, Vivian, and Miss Sidney and I would play canasta. Miss Sidney made spaghetti for lunch. Such a warm welcoming home. Vivian will be missed, but be consoled that she is having so many wonderful reunions in heaven with loved ones. Rest in peace, dear Vivian.
