Teachers get a special place in heaven, especially given the challenging students she had (like me)! Your mom will get back to her square dancin’ in no time! Praying for you all.
Sheryl Murphy says
The greatest gift to a parent is knowing you raised compassionate, loving and responsible children. I know your mom is very proud of the man you are….may she rest in peace!

Vivian was one of the most kindest women I knew. I could tell she had a good heart because she raised such wonderful children, in which one has been a close friend of mine since Kindergarten, Alan Jones. Alan and his wife Linda did such an awesome job caring for Vivian until she passed. She could have not asked for more. RIP Vivian. Prayers to the family.
