Greg, Brooke and I send our love and prayers during this time. I will always remember the way Aunt Viola brightened up the room when she walked in. Always quick with a joke or funny story. She was always there with a smile and cheerfulness in hard times. She was a blessing to me and my family especially when my Grandmother(Boots Pearman) was in the hospital. I will never forget her.

Roy and I extend our sympathy at this time of sadness. May God comfort you with sweet memories of your Mother and Grandmother. I enjoyed meeting her at Hannah and John's wedding. The pictures on this site certainly showed how much she enjoyed her family.
