Our dearest Amy, Vi was always a gracious hostess. You could always count on her to tell you what you needed to hear even if it wasn’t what you necessarily wanted to hear. She was greatly loved and will be dearly missed.
Wishing we could be by your side at this time. And that you will have a day of special moments in this time of sorrow and treasured memories to lift you up.
We pray for hope and comfort for you and your family in the midst of your pain.

Much Love,
Dale, Barb and Christopher
