  • I was very young when you passed, but we still made some great memories I still think about you weekly which is turning into daily for the last 7 years I still visit your grave with my dad when I can or when I'm able to. Me and my family miss you so much and even though technically me and my dad and aunt and sister (even my mother) aren't blood related you still took all of us as your own and we all love you so much and miss you terribly. I don't remember seeing you before you died or remember going to your funeral and to this day I still feel guilty for not going but I was too young and I'm sorry for not being there. I still consider you to be my favourite family member to this day. when I think of you I think about the times where you would hold me and my sister and just play with us and be there for everybody when you left it was hard on everyone who knew you. You were a big part of my life and I want to thank you for being apart of it. I love you & miss you lots nana fly high❤ - Posted by: Jaelyn Karol (grandaughter) on: Sep 27, 2020

  • I'm so sorry for your loss. It must be so difficult for you particularly at this time of year. It was obvious how loved she never left her side. Although I didn't know her personally our conversations about Viola helped me to realize what a lovely lady she was. Please know that I will think of you all during this time and hope that in time although you will never forget, your tears will be less frequent and you will begin to remember all of the lovely memories you as a family have made over this years. Take care. - Posted by: Michelle Loeppky (Nurse MICU) on: Dec 24, 2013
