    Our sympathy to Art and Diana Smith, and family, on the loss of Diana’s mother. Your dedicated care of Violet through the years was a remarkable gift.

    Today is a hard day , my aunt Vie /God mother passed into heaven . She was there so many times to dry my tears , and helped me understand things l could not. She helped heal my heart when it hurt. Her words l hear so clearly “ This too will pass.” And a hug would follow, life is hard you will make mistakes but we learn from them! I have fond memories spending my summers with “my up north family.” She always said we were her children too! My love for reading came from her! She taught me to crochet and knit to help with my stress. I remember her saying “what joy!”
    Her smile and laughter will be in my heart forever. Rest In Peace Auntie.
