  • Louanne Bailey says:

    My Mom was my first friend and my best friend. Words cannot express how much we loved her and will miss her, but now there is another angel in heaven to watch over us and we will meet her there when God calls us to be with Him too. So until then we will live with our wonderful memories and see her in our children and grandchildren. She had a long life well lived with a loving family and friends. I will miss her everyday….

    Dear family,
    Our memories of Vi are of a fun, spunky woman. She was always up for anything. A few of our favorite memories are Bear’s parties, lake, and beach time!
    She adored her family and they were so good to include her in great travel.
    She now has eternal life with our heavenly Father!
    We will all miss her but she set a great example of how to live as we get older💕.
    Love, Carla and Pat
