So sorry to hear about Vivian. It was so nice to see her smile and talk with her when we were members of Pleasant Dale and the times we would come back for a visit. We are praying for the family. Judy and Richard Belk

Oh how I will miss our BiBi! She always greeted me with a smile & a kiss & I will surely miss that! She loved & was loved by all who knew her & loved her Church family too. She's now on Heavens shore reminiscing with her sisters & loved ones who've gone on before & I'm sure that must be a good time indeed! Our loss is Heavens gain. RIP Aunt BiBi & I'll see you again! Love you! 😘
