Dear Cheri, Nan, Dave, and extended family, we are so saddened by the loss of your mom. Aunt Viv was very special to us. She and Uncle Bud drove from Des Plaines to Barrington to pick me up on our wedding day, to drive me all the way to Chicago - they had the big car/backseat that my dress and I would fit in! She was always happy to answer my baking/cooking questions. We even made her famous with her recipe "Aunt Viv's Cheesecake" that was published in the Carol Stream School cookbook. She loved it when we brought our little dog Noah to visit her at her condo. And our family loved sending her emails and cards, knowing she enjoyed them :) She is smiling down now, just like she always did, all the time. And memories will bring you peace. All our love, Ed, Donna, Bryan and boys, Kristy and family
