"My heart breaks to see this beautiful and very special Lady leave us. Viola had such a loving and caring heart for everyone. Her soft voice spoke volumes of compassion for her large beautiful family, but it didn?t stop there. It extended to friends. I can hear her little laugh and I loved her sense of humor. Though I am not family I have been a friend for many many years with her beautiful daughter Carolyn. Viola always got joy from our friendship and never judged our onryness she would just shake her head and snicker. She will be missed by many and I will be one. I pray for her lovely family. May God comfort you all."
