Our sympathy to Vi’s family
We cherish the memories of our friendship with Vi and Jack. We became friends at GracePointe while Jack and Bob recovered from hip surgeries. We looked forward to our visits with them each day and enjoyed sharing the evening meals together.
Vi lived her faith daily. She brought a ray of sunshine to those around her. Vi and Jack brought a whole new meaning to the word “friendship.” We are blessed that our paths crossed and we became good friends with them and their families.
