    Roxanne, Ed, Ricarda, Jeff and Family,

    I don’t need to tell you that Vivian, your mother, was a special lady. We always enjoyed her flowers, seasonal decorations and recall that she enjoyed our pup Daisy (She called her “Tippy”) as we walked by her home during the summer. Please accept our deepest condolences during this difficult time. You will be in our thoughts and prayers!

    Love, Scot and Denise Reynolds

    Roxanna and Ricarda showed Ms. Vivian every day how much they loved her, whether it was a daily visit or phone call you were there for your mom. No mother could ask for more devoted daughters than you two. I know you will miss her, she was a very special person.

    So sorry for your loss. I did not hear about Viv’s death until today. All I can say is your loss will be heaven’s gain. What a terrific human being your mom was. I remember how welcoming she was when you came into your home and she talked to teens as though they were adults. What I will remember most, and can still hear to this day, some 40 years later “was that hearty laugh of hers. Writing this comment has brought back so many memories of “Viv”‘- most of which puts a smile on my face as I type this. From Angel on Earth to Angel in Heaven you will be missed.
