She and my Mom are together once again. She was a library of knowledge when it came to the family both the Pratts and the Northrups. I will miss you very much.

Aunt Vivian was a special aunt.
She and I have teased each other about a cleaning product for over 60 years. (Inside story)
We wish her peace.
Sorry we cannot attend the funeral.

We will miss you sister.
Living in Florida I didn’t get to see you as often as we would have liked.

The last time we were in Lansing Vivian answered so many questions that I had about the family in the younger days. Dale was so amazed that at her age she was so knowledgeable about the family history and could remember so many details.

Sorry we cannot be at the funeral but just know our love and thoughts are with you.
