  1. Al and Kari and Terry and Randy
    I am so sorry for your loss. I have very fond memories of working with Vi at the Riverton Bank. This was my first job and she took me under her wing and took care of me. She was a wonderful friend and mentor.

  2. Dear Al and Family:

    When I first came to the Athens Christian Church, before I became teacher of the Kingdom Seekers Class.
    Vi told me, “Hi, you won’t forget me I am the doughnut lady!” She did her job well, taking care of the details for the refreshments for our Sunday School Class. I will remember her willingness to serve and her smiling service for the Lord through her friends, family and church. Our prayers will continue for comfort and peace in the days ahead! Tom Novy

  3. Alan & Kari,
    Sorry for your loss, She battled strongly, May God watch over you now and forever in your time of need.
    Richard & Theda Kaylor

  4. Dear Allen, Kari and Betty-
    Was so sorry to hear that Vi is gone. A beautiful soul entered Heaven that day. You have my deepest sympathy. Linda
