Wanda and family, we share your sorry in the loss of your loving precious Mom. We were neighbors, you all were off the Ave and we were on 5th and Taney Pl. You all had the most manequered lawn in the neighborhood. Ms Viola is at rest now, no more worries, sadness, pain again. We pray that you will all find comfort in her loving, precious memories, and oh that beautiful smile as we remember. Our Prayers,love and thoughts are with you all. R.I.H. Ms Viola.
