Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I never knew Viola well but she always greeted me like we'd spent our life together. I owe her great thanks for creating such a wonderful daughter, Marianne, who took such good care of her, and the rest of the family who took me in as one of their own. Much love and sympathy, Lisa
