Such a dear Christian lady ...and a dear friend of ours. She opened her home to us when we first moved to Mancheter in 1976, until we found an apartment a month later. Many children came to church in Sis. Vi's old station wagon, week in and week out. She truly loved her Lord and Savior, and we shall never forget her jovial laugh and sweet spirit. We'll see you again Vi.
