Vivian, a beautiful, kind and generous woman, dearly loved by her Mt Carmel Church family and friends. No matter her challenges in life, she carried herself with grace and humility. Never have I known such a wonderful role model with such courage and yet such gentleness.
God didn't just gain an angel...He just gained a Saint!
