I have so many wonderful memories with Violet! I loved taking her to the museum! She always had such a fun and funny personality, and kept us laughing! I will miss her so much! ❤️
Dear Violet, Your sweet smile and zest for neighbor visits will be missed. Even now I can hear you say "Oh ANGIE!" in recognition . You struck quite a pose poolside with your ribboned bonnet. I will continue to cherish your Pottery pieces. May God keep you close, Angie
