  1. Carrie, Scott, and family: I am so saddened to hear of the loss of Vivian. She was a special lady, and Scott you were such a caring, loving son to her. Scott, (and now Carrie as she became your wife), I’m certain she appreciated all you both did for her, and she’ll continue to be proud of you from ‘up on high.’ I feel fortunate to have spent a little time with Vivian at your wedding, and will remember her lively eyes as she watched all of us celebrate the joining of your lives together and when she was ‘chair dancing.’ My heartfelt condolences for your loss.
