My wife Russ Wiley and I loved Violet Jane, as did my mother and father Ethel Joy Davis and Russell Burns Davis and my sister Sally Davis. She was a brilliant human being with a great sense of humor and zest for life. She and my mother went to Peabody Demonstration School together and were lifetime friends. For years, we went to her lovely Christmas parties at her house. May she be blessed to read, have new experiences, and watch birds for eternity.
