It is with fond memories that I share my condolences. I always remember those soft-spoken, easy-going ways. Aunt Vi inspired admiration for the way she worked to raise her four teenagers after Uncle Mike passed away. Those six grandchildren and eight greatgrandchildren made it all worth the effort. I was so touched to see her at my dad's funeral, thank you for being there. Thank you for being a part of my family. God bless,

Mike McErlain
