On behalf of my parents, Al and Gerry Stinnette, and our family I would like to offer our most heartfelt sympathy. Vivian was truly one of a kind. She had a sharp wit, a compassionate heart and a never-ending love for her family. My father was extremely saddened when he heard the news. Vivian was very special to him. In spite of our sadness we did share a few laughs of vacations at Myrtle Beach many years ago. Those were such good times. It is just so hard to believe how long ago that was. Nonetheless, we remember Vivian as the vivacious lady that loved to laugh. May your hearts find peace and your memories lead you through. God Bless.
