  1. Paul, my condolences. Violet was such a beautiful lady in every way. I believe I was her first piano student and I learned so much from her. It saddened me to read this although I know she is now free of all pain and walking in heaven with God.

  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of Violet . I use to see her while I worked on the floor as a PSW at LMV. She always enjoyed chating with you and always was so thankful for everything that we did for her. She will be missed by so many. Former PSW from LMV. Maureen Bailey from A.E.C. from LMV !!
