Sept 23

Tomorrow Is Vivian's Big Party Day!  I invite you to please join us to celebrate her life.  If you are coming to the Mass and Celebration, wear your Vivian's Victory T-Shirt if you have one!  Girlfriend has achieved the ultimate Victory!


  1. Will be thinking of all of you tomorrow as you celebrate her life!!!!! Wish I could be there!!

  2. Hi Maria, this is Dollie Rauch in Arizona. I'm not sure if you remember me. My husband, Joe, and your dad are cousins. Joe went to heaven to be with Jesus in June. We were all VERY shocked and are still pretty devastated. I have been reading your blogs and praying for all of you every day, and you have been on my mind constantly. Your unfailing faith and sense of hope have been such an inspiration to me!! You have a true mother's heart, loving unconditionally. I will continue to pray for all of you as the coming days are the hardest part for those of us left on earth. Joe absolutely adored babies. In fact a couple of days before he died he came running in the house to get me because the neighbors had their 3 day old baby outside. He could hardly wait to get his hands on him. He had such huge hands and the babies always looked so small in them. I want you to know that I am sure that the world's best Papa was first in line to welcome little Vivian in heaven and I am sure he is taking good care of your little blessing. (Along with God!) Our 9 grandchildren all agree that their Papa will LOVE having Vivian with him!
    I will be praying for all of you tomorrow as you celebrate little Vivian's wonderful life. I wish you God's love...which you already have.
    Love to you and all of your family.
    Dollie Rauch

  3. Maria,
    I am sorry I can not be there for your family in person today. I haven't been able to stop thinking about your little angel. She is an integral part of His greater good that may take us a lifetime to understand. My thoughts and prayers are perpetually with you. You are the gift of fortitude, personified. Know that your precious daughter touched all of our lives and even the lives of people who were never fortunate enough to have met her. You are as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside and I'm sure she took after her amazing mother. We are here for you anytime you need us. She is safe and sound now in His loving arms.
