My deepest sympathy to you and your family. Vivian was such an important part of our lives. Always loved when she could come stay with is in Larimore, or go shopping with us in Fergus Falls. She will be deeply missed. I’m relieved she isn’t suffering any longer. Hugs and prayers to you all. Anita Brevik Farrell
Thank you so much
Kim, Matthew and Christopher,
Our sympathy to you and your families. Vivian and I were classmates in Rothsay and also both in VA together as Navy wives when our sons were born. She sent us a support package when our son was serving in Iraq. It was such a blessing to know she understood what we were experiencing then. We are sorry for your loss.
