    I always enjoyed catching up with Vivian on the phone. We had such lovely and interesting conversations about anything and everything. In addition to our cousin connection, she told me how she used to babysit Randy’s little sister, Becky, and would wear their mom’s housecoat since it was comforting to the baby. Charles and Daniel, you were blessed with a wonderful mom and I’m glad we still stay in touch. Prayers for God’s peace.
