Grandma Viola had a special place in our heart. We will miss visiting her when in the States, and will miss our regular phone calls we made to keep in touch. She left us with many good memories of time spent with her and Grandpa many years ago and since then with her as she just kept serving the Lord with great love and faithfulness in the capacity she had, right up to the end. We rejoice she is with her Savior in whom she put her faith.

We sorrow to know we won't see Grandma/Grandma Great again this side of Heaven, but we rejoice to know that she is in the presence of her Lord whom she loved and served. We will miss our visits with her, her laughter and most of all the fellowship of the Gospel that we enjoyed with her. We thank God for all the memories we have with her and look forward to seeing her again in Heaven one day soon.

Viola loved the Lord and she loved to entertain. She made many fun Christmas celebrations for us and our children and grandchildren. She will be missed.

We enjoyed sitting behind Viola at church. She walked in with a big smile a a hug as big. I found out she loved seeded watermelon and would bring her some when I found any. She will truly be missed. Our reunion will be oh so sweet.
