    Just found out that Vivian passed.
    She was our good friend and a great neighbor.
    We had long talks in the street and she always came to our parties.
    We shared a love of music and the beach.
    Still would like to hear her singing recordings.
    She loved her family.

  2. I just saw this – wondering about dear Vivian. She was a delight – sparkling and caring. She had a great relationship with Clara. I SO enjoyed seeing her. Her family is so blessed to have had her as mother and grandmother – and many wonderful memories. I loved her dearly.
