In her memory, it is my honor to repeat my words on the anniversary and time of Vivien's Passing:
"Vivien, in light of her amazing accomplishments, both in the field of court reporting and academia, coupled with her humility, was a rare combination of quality traits. Her lifes mission in carrying the message of the Holocaust from her experience as a Nazi War Crimes Trial court reporter to the youth of our nation, distinguishing between the benefits and negative undercurrents of the difference between good and evil, in my book qualify her as a martyr.
Having arranged numerous bookings for her speaking engagements before medical, law, and religious groups in South Florida and Washington, D.C., met with great feedback as to her warm, accurate, and realistic delivery regarding her word-picture presentations, enough to have called her back many times by popular demand.
I am proud to have called Vivien my friend."
