Everyone that she came in contact with instantly began to love her. She loved cooking for everyone, gardening in her yard, scrapbooking, taking her girl trips to Gatlinburg, watching her hummingbirds, sitting on the front porch & most of all taking care of and spending time with her family.

    Violet was one of the sweetest, most “positive” people that I’ve ever known. She touched so many lives- family, friends, and so many patients as a nurse- she was a nurse in the time when nurses went around to their patients in the evenings and gave back rubs to help them fall off to sleep! She will be greatly missed by her tight-knit family and many friends.

    I knew Violet through my Sister in Law Debbie Horton. What I remember most about Violet was her beautiful Smile! She was always so nice and kind to me. She was a beautiful person inside and out. Heaven gain another Angel today. She will be miss by all who knew her. To all the family I am so sorry for your loss. But, the comfort of knowing one day you will see her and all your love ones again. My thoughts and prayers are with Ray, Debbie, & Sharon, and all the family.

    Ray,
    So sorry to hear about Violet. SO sorry I won’t be able to attend. Forrest & Marilyn were coming for me,but decided this morning I’d better not.

    Please know my heart is with you and convey my sympathy to the girls.
    Sincerely,
    Jo

    Oh wow, this is going to be wonderful. Your boklcs are just beautiful. I just started making stitcheries for quilts while I was recovering from surgery. I am totally addicted to them now…didn’t that long to fall into that delightful habit. Now, when I can get back to my sewing machine and border the stitcheries, I will be a very happy woman. Soon I hope…in the meantime, I’m stitching away! I hope to see your finished quilt for this project very soon! Hugs…
