What a lady. Our parents, Vernon & Dora Pilkington thought so much of Vi & Don and loved them much. It was a treat for us to hear their music, and stories of their life together. They shared so freely. What a life, and what a wonderful and big family they’ve left. Sending our love. Linda (Pilkington) Hickam

Sandy and family. I'm so sorry for your loss. Your parents were Betty Mae's Sunday Scool teachers and I was always uplifted by them when we would visit their class. After your Dad passed your Mom carried on tremendously. My Mom loved Vi. They are worshiping HIM together now.
