I will miss Viola deeply. We have been friends for many years. We were always partners when we had game nights. We had lots of
fun and lots of laughs. We shared the good times and the bad.
When our husbands passed away we still kept in touch. I knew she hadn't been well and was sorry to hear of her passing.
She is now at peace and know that God has gotten another angel.
My deepest sympathies to the whole family. May God put his loving arms around you and give you the strength to make
it through the days ahead.

Viola was a lovely lady. She & her husband frequented Senor Jalepenos at the same time my late husband did. Many fun evenings!
