We are all saddened to hear the news about your Grandmothers passing. It seems that she lived a long and joyful life and I am sure she will be remembered mostly for her kindness and bright smile.

Sincere condolences,

Your CWPD Family

Violet was a very dear family friend. She and my mom graduated from high school together and remained friends until my mom passed in 2003. I am saddened to hear of her passing, but I know she is rejoicing with her daughter and her friends. May God bless you during this time.
