Frank and Family. I remember Vivian from living near our family when growing up. She, her sister Pat and her mother were always so friendly. Later years, it was good seeing you both at St. Augustine Mass. Our prayers that the memories keep Viv with you daily.

Frank, Lynn, and Jeff ~ my deepest sympathies 🩷. So many happy times we shared on 22nd Street. Viv’s hardy laugh despite all of Frank’s shenanigans is certainly a treasured memory. She was a gem ~ thanks for all you are to the Sax family.

Frank, Pam, Lynn, and Jeff, Our hearts broke into a million pieces upon hearing of Viv's passing. Treasured memories of "old neighborhood" days came flooding back, along with many tears. Viv was just the sweetest, kindest, most patient person with so many talents! We were so blessed to have had her in our lives. Prayers of comfort and peace are the way. ~The Bob and Kay Sax Family
