Frank, Charlotte and family,

No words can express the sadness we are feeling about the passing of Vivian. Our hearts are broken! Vivian had been a huge part of our family for 50+ years. She and mom worked together and were the best of friends. She would babysit Chantelle and Declan, play games with them and just come for a visit all the time. She was a great comfort to me. We would always radio BINGO together. She will be missed and definitely never, ever far from our hearts. Rest well Aunt Vivi, till we meet again. I know you and mom are having a grand chat up there.
Prayers and condolences ,

Darlene, Jean-Claude & Declan Derible
