It's hard to believe that 8 years ago today she went to be Jesus.
Vivian had one of the happiest personalities of anyone that I have ever met. She would see the best in everything. She didn't hesitate showing her emotions or hold back her excitement. For example, the first time she came over to my house we hadn't known each other too well yet. We walked into my bedroom and she SCREAMED out loud. I was so caught off guard and thought something terrible happened. When I turned around, all I saw was Vivian flying through the air and landing on my bed.
She started laughing and said: "I love your bed. It's so big and tall and there are so many pillows on it that I just HAD to run and jump on it."
I remember thinking: "Wow, this girl is not afraid to be herself." I LOVED it. Most 17 year old's (including myself) would have been too embarrassed of what there new friend might have thought of them... but not Vivian.
She was full of life . . . . .
Here's a few pictures I thought I would share
This was handed out at her memorial service
Born: November 23rd, 1984 Went to be with Jesus March 9, 2004
More than anything Vivian loved Jesus and lived her life honoring Him.
Her life is a beautiful testament
and her story has touched the lives of so many.
This video was made by Tim O'Brien and was shown at her Memorial service.
